"Seven Two takes the reader on a vibrant journey through New England mill towns, to the lakes of the Midwest and the high peaks of Oregon. A young man comes of age as a firefighter, but finds the bonds of brotherhood stop at the station door. Corrupt government and academic officials operate in a different world juxtaposed with the basic values of the firefighter ingrained throughout. Greer's marvelous descriptions and real world dialogue bring all this and more home to the reader." Chief Gary Ryman
