Synopsis: In recent years, wildfires have blazed throughout the western United States, destroying homes, forests, and wildlife. Are these conflagrations -- unparalleled in most people's memory -- natural events that people should take in stride? Or are they the result of policies that ought to be changed? This book offers an objective overview in an attempt to answer these and other questions about forest fires.
"The writing is clear and intelligent. Attractively presented, this title makes a useful springboard for further research into the topic. Recommended."
-- Library Media Connection (March 2003) (Library Media Connection 20030301)
"The text is clear, and the material presented uses specific examples and a few black-and-white photographs to illustrate the magnitude of the damage caused by forest fires...The debate on how to reintroduce fire into the landscape is covered, and the author does an excellent job of characterizing the importance of fire in maintaining healthy forests, namely, that forest fires break down plant material that then fertilizes the soil and increases biodiversity."
