This book is the second 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 2: Image and Light continues in the manner of Book 1. It is loosely formed around the question, “What made the Gobi special?”...As before, this book is in rough chronology. More pictures have been included with Book 2. Clarifying remarks precede some stories to include necessary information and to maintain a clear order. Contributors have been recognized either by the first year they served at the Base or by their timely association with the Base.
