ISBN: 816522855

In 32 essays, Pyne, a fire scholar and veteran of 15 seasons on a fire crew in Grand Canyon National Park, assumes the role of cultural historian and explores issues and theories relating to wildland fire and the management (or mis-management) of it. Ultimately, although he is critical of some of the more aggressive fire control practices of the Western world, he doesn't put forth concrete ideas to change existing policy. If Pyne's work is interesting to you, this is some of his latest, and some say his best.
