Description

ISBN: 806140348

This book covers the same event as the more famous Norman MacLean book, Young Men and Fire, but where MacLean's book focused on the fire, this one focuses on the people involved in fighting that fire, and their families. Aided by reminiscences of the families and the survivors of that fire, Matthews builds a sort of nonfiction novel. The first part of the book is a little slow while Matthews introduces readers to the characters and their families, but it really picks up in the second half when the seemingly slow fire races out of control and consumes everything in its path.
