Review / Stories by Kevin Raney

This book is for anyone who has ever wanted to be a park ranger, forester or wildland firefighter. At the ripe old age of 30 I ask for help to grow up. You will read about problems and solutions, illness and healing. I have written this book because I believe my experiences are interesting. I believe you will be interested too.

My Review:
This was a very interesting very short read.  This book was written in a narrative and there is little interaction with the other characters in the stories.  What I felt was missing from this was feeling.  We hear what the main character, Jane, is experiencing and feeling but we aren't shown her feelings.  It is written like a diary/journal.
The stories within Stories were all very interesting.  We get to see all the different jobs Jane has dealing with wild fires.  The abusive behavior of her supervisors, her experience starting a taxi service, and eventually the mental stress of work and abuse.
Overall this was a good book.
