So Others Might Live: A History of New York’s Bravest: The FDNY from 1700 to the Present
Terry Golway (au)
Fighting fire in New York City has always been one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. Here, Golway chronicles the unique history of “New York’s Bravest.” From the volunteers of colonial times to the “fire laddies” who raced each other to put out blazes in the 1840s, from the professional corps that gave job security to so many immigrants, especially the Irish, after the 1860s, to the highly-trained force of today, the FDNY has always had a distinct culture born of the bonds that firefighters share. Traces the amazing history of these unique civil servants who have worked so hard to protect the city. Interweaves the stories of real life characters, famous & unknown, with the dramatic history of a city on the rise. “A gripping chronicle.” B&W photos.
