This book is the third in a series of books about the history of Siskiyou Smokejumper Base in Cave Junction, Oregon (a.k.a., Gobi). It consists of the written memories of those who worked at the base. The following is from the book's introduction.
The Book of Gobi, Book 3: Mountains and Desert is likely the last in this series. As the two previous books, this one continues to answer the what and the why of the Gobi. In so many of the stories throughout the three volumes, a young person arrives at the Gobi and undergoes a transformation, and in later years tries to explain what happened in those mountains and on that desert.
