Synopsis: This is an edited collection of essays on wildfire. Pieces were selected to show the literary and aesthetic aspects of wildfire, and the evolution of our understanding of it. These essays focus on the intriguing, frightening, awe-inspiring dimensions of fire within an ecological framework. Nature Writer And Wildland Firefighter gathers together some of the finest stories and essays ever written about wildfire in America.

About the Author:

Alianor True has fought fires in recent years for Grand Canyon National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve, and Sequoia National Park. Her essays have appeared in anthologies including American Nature Writing: 1998 (Sierra Club Books) and American Nature Writing: 2000 (Oregon State University Press).

She spent all four of her Cornell University undergraduate years (1994-1997) as a firefighter. Instead of living in the dorms, she lived at the fire station. For three years, she was the only female firefighter. She spent her summers fighting wildland fires in Grand Canyon National Park, Big Cypress National Reserve, Sequoia National Park, and with the Las Vegas Bureau of Land Management.

True, still a firefighter and only 26, has a passion for the science and history of fire. Her curiosity for the changing historical perspectives of fire is what motivated her to compile and edit Wildfire: A Reader.
