Synopsis: Revealing the role of fire in the growth and maintenance of a forest, an introduction to this type of organic recycling explains how fire provides new food sources for wildlife while clearing the way for new generations of trees.

From Booklist: Gr. 4^-6. Chiding news commentators for painting the 1988 forest fires in Yellowstone National Park as catastrophic, Pringle takes the long view of fire in the Northern Rocky Mountain ecosystem. He discusses the effect of fire on the plants and animals native to the region, showing that the ecosystem is neither destroyed by a fire nor reborn after it, but simply goes through different stages of its natural cycle. Pringle makes his points intelligently, asking readers to look beyond Bambi and Smokey the Bear to see that fire is "as natural as rain." The text, accompanied by small paintings of plants and animals, appears on facing pages that alternate with double-page spread illustrations. Stretching horizontally across the pages, these large, vivid paintings show the same landscape in different stages of growth before, during, and after a fire. The paintings underscore the theme very effectively. A handsome ecology book. Carolyn Phelan
