A thoughtful look at the lives of emergency service personnel

More Confessions of a Trauma Junkie, 2nd EdMore Confessions of a Trauma Junkie by Sherry Jones Mayo is an incredibly thoughtful, eloquent, and revealing life documentation of how emergency service personnel do what they do, their highs and lows. These are the law enforcers, trauma nurses, firefighters, military, and paramilitary, those in corrections and public health. The author succinctly brings out how those professionals have to strike a balance between their family at home and their second family, which is work.

The book thrusts the reader into a life filled with so many dimensions and perspectives of how emergency respondents live, the encounters they have, and how life-changing some of these encounters are. Written from the other side of the coin by a paramedic, the tales are familiar and endearing. Author Sherry Jones Mayo showcases real-life experiences from first-hand responders, both emotional and hard-hitting, but the author employs relief to the reader by adding humor to the stories.

As a reader, “More Confessions of a Trauma Junkie” gives an illuminating realization of the heroism of emergency service professionals, their devotion and commitment to saving lives. One prime example the book covers is Hurricane Katrina, the burden it placed on the first responders of the crisis and the delays experienced.
No one is born ready or prepared for all emergencies. The author notes that what is important is having an alternative plan. Notable is the fact that the book also addresses topics such as dealing with grief, healing, and living in hope of a better tomorrow.

All things considered, this book is finely written and it is easy to grasp the attention of even a non-professional outside the medical field. The author also provides a lexicon at the end of the book for readers to reference throughout their reading. “More Confessions of a Trauma Junkie” by Sherry Jones Mayo would be a wonderful eye-opener for someone who wants to start a career in the field of firefighting, law enforcement and the medical field.

Product Details

Like any tapestry, the threads of history cross over and under each other in different points of view and places in time. Award-winning author Deborah K. Frontiera mixes natural science and geology into history where those aspects intersect with the lives of people or are the reason Michigan's Upper Peninsula developed the way it did. Enjoy this work's unique perspective, the point of view of trees, rocks, rivers and artifacts--among them a ship's bell, a lighthouse, a cross-cut saw, beads and rings given in trade, a bent propeller and many more. Students, adults and families will enjoy experiencing history in this unique way.

"Deborah K. Frontiera takes U.P. history and turns it into a fun story, told by its least appreciated players. Here, we have the perspective of the St. Mary's River, the bell on the Edmund Fitzgerald, an early iron forge, a sauna, the Bishop Baraga statue and many, many more. Together, they make Superior Tapestry a diverse and refreshing alternative to more straightforward historical narratives, while educating us in entertaining ways and, once again, displaying the creativity of Yooper culture." -- Tyler R. Tichelaar, Ph.D. in literature and award-winning author of Haunted Marquette and Kawbawgam: The Chief, The Legend, The Man

"Frontiera has a knack for bringing inanimate objects to life and imbuing them with observational skills that let the reader see the world around the objects through their eyes. Human time is dwarfed when compared to the span of time experienced by some of the objects Frontiera describes. This book is such an interesting read; I'll be using it as my guide when exploring the nooks and crannies of the Upper Peninsula in Michigan." -- Linda Martin-Rust, Ph.D.

"What a fun way to learn about our Upper Peninsula history; a great book for all ages. Superior Tapestry will become one of your favorite UP books." --Tony Bausano, president of Copper World Gift Shop, Calumet, Michigan.
