Editorial Reviews

?Forest fires are both the subject and the main characters in this mesmerizing account by a MacArthur Prize?winning professor who spent 15 summers as a ?Longshot? firefighter. The result is a heady combination of poetic prose, analytic language (trees are ?large fuels?), and ecological polemic directed at the bureaucratic infighting that afflicts the two great administrators of the nation?s wilderness?the Park Service and the National Forest Service. . . . This rewarding book should add a ?large fuel? of its own to the debate over our endangered wilderness. - Kirkus
