Description - Year of the Fire by Stephen J Pyne
In the summer of 1910, wildfires int eh Northern Rockies scorched millions of acres, darkened skies in New England, and deposited soot on the ice in Greenland. The flames ravaged pristine wilderness along with farms, towns, and mining camps, culminating in the deaths of seventy-eight firefighters in the Big Blowup along the Montana-Idaho border. Year of the Fires is the riveting story of that catastrophic year and its pivotal role in establishing how we deal with forest fire in this country.
