Fire Training

Chief Teie’s training and operational aids for firefighters are recognized worldwide as some of the best fire training tools available.

A complete line of fire training products

The Firefighter’s Handbook on Wildland Firefighting was originally published in 1994. Thousands of them have been sold to firefighters and fire agencies all over the world. Over 50 colleges have used it in their wildland firefighting courses. The other products produced by Deer Valley Press all support the handbook and fire ground operations. The Wildland Firefighting Training Suite (handbook, study guide, flash cards and PowerPoint DVD) is unequaled in completeness.

4 Wheeling

If you are a four-wheeler in California, you shouldn’t hit the trail without the appropriate trail guide from Deer Valley Press.

California trail guides and maps

Chief Teie’s love of maps and the fact the world-famous Rubicon Trail is just over 15 miles from his home moved him into the 4WD trail guide development. You’ll find full guides for the Rubicon Trail and the trails of the San Bernardino Mountains and the Tahoe National Forest as well as selected individual maps.


Deer Valley Press now offers two history books: History of a Place Called Rescue and The Pladsons of Newburgh Township.

History written from the heart

History of a Place Called Rescue is about where Chief Teie lives. Rescue, California, is a small, rural community in the heart of California’s gold country. Rescue may be small and have a unique name, but it is also rich with history — and that history is what this 380-page, full-color book is all about! Over 800 photographs and other graphics in this beautifully presented table-top book capture the spirit of the past.

The Pladsons of Newburgh Township is about Chief Teie’s family genealogy and the Norwegians who came to America in the 1860s, eventually settling in North Dakota. This beautiful 544-page, full-color book includes over 950 photographs, maps, and other graphics from family and private collections. Learn about these courageous Norwegian immigrants and their families, homes, farms, schools, churches, and early pioneer life in North Dakota.
