Brothers Lost - A Novel
I was left with nothing but admiration for the Granite Mountain hotshot crew who put their lives on the line to protect the town of Yarnell. Brendan McDonough is the only survivor of the fire at Yarnell. Today he is a public speaker and works with numerous nonprofits for veterans, police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical services. He lives in Prescott, Arizona. He lives in Montclair, New Jersey. The true story behind the events that inspired the major motion picture Only the Brave. A "unique and bracing" Booklist first-person account by the sole survivor of Arizona's disastrous Yarnell Hill Fire, which took the lives of 19 "hotshots"--firefighters trained specifically to battle wildfires.
Brendan McDonough was on the verge of becoming a hopeless, inveterate heroin addict when he, for the sake of his young daughter, decided to turn his life around. He enlisted in the Granite Mountain Hotshots, a team of elite firefighters based in Prescott, Arizona. Their leader, Eric Marsh, was in a desperate crunch after four hotshots left the unit, and perhaps seeing a glimmer of promise in the skinny would-be recruit, he took a chance on the unlikely McDonough, and the chance paid off.

Despite the crew's skepticism, and thanks in large part to Marsh's firm but loving encouragement, McDonough unlocked a latent drive and dedication, going on to successfully battle a number of blazes and eventually win the confidence of the men he came to call his brothers. Then, on June 30, , while McDonough--"Donut" as he'd been dubbed by his team--served as lookout, they confronted a freak, 3,degree inferno in nearby Yarnell, Arizona. The relentless firestorm ultimately trapped his hotshot brothers, tragically killing all 19 of them within minutes.
Granite Mountain is a gripping memoir that traces McDonough's story of finding his way out of the dead end of drugs, finding his purpose among the Granite Mountain Hotshots, and the minute-by-minute account of the fateful day he lost the very men who had saved him. A harrowing and redemptive tale of resilience in the face of tragedy, Granite Mountain is also a powerful reminder of the heroism of the people who put themselves in harm's way to protect us every day.

And more so, glad 'Donut' is still with us and sharing the story of his heroic brothers. Very good first hand account. See all 3 reviews. Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. This was a really personal account of Brendan's life leading up to getting on with a shot crew, and the subsequent relationships that formed thereafter.
I found myself laughing and choking up throughout the book.
I commend him for having the strength to put it all out there in this account of not only the tragic Yarnell Hill fire, but of the Brotherhood that was forged in blood, sweat, and tears over the course of a few grueling fire seasons and how it transformed his life for the better. Verified Purchase. As a firefighter, both wildland and structural, this book is both an imperative read and one of the most difficult things I have ever read.
After reading this work I am humbled now more than ever to be part of such an awesome career. The writing hits close to home as I think how easily and how quickly this could be me or any one of the men and women I proudly call my brothers and sisters. To see how strong Brendan has been, his willingness to serve others, and his desire to improve the world we live in; for his daughter and for firefighters, is inspiring.
