In the 1880s the US Forest Service didn't hire women, thinking they couldn't handle the physical challenges of the work. But the Forest Service didn't know Hallie Morse Daggett and how determined she could be. This picture-book biography tells the story of Hallie Morse Daggett, the first woman "fire guard" hired by the US Forest Service.
