    In The Worst Hard Time, Timothy Egan put the environmental disaster of the Dust Bowl at the center of a rich history, told through characters he brought to indelible life. Now he performs the same alchemy with The Big Burn, the largest-ever forest fire in America, a tragedy that cemented Teddy Roosevelt's legacy.

    P. Bergh says: "A fascinating history of early Forest Service"
    "very enjoyable"
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this. It is a long narrative of an incredible event in our history. I am a Am. Hstory fan and I never knew this story. The book develops a great Progressive story of our development of our Forestry Service and of the tragic fire in our Northwest, that solidified its existence.

    Best-selling author Bryan Burrough reveals how four Texas oil tycoons transformed America. Rising from humble beginnings through hard work and shrewd dealings, they shifted the balance of power in American politics. While hobnobbing with movie stars and presidents, the Big Rich also created the legend of the swaggering Texas oilman with island hideaways and sprawling ranches.

    Andrew says: "Houston Oilman"
    "BIG Story of THE BIG RICH"
    Overall

    I'm a Yankee that attended college in Texas in the late '70's and I experienced the last oil boom in Texas. This book starts at the beginning of the Texas oil boom and takes it past my time in TX to almost the present. I have read a lot of books on the Texas oil families and am a great fan of the people that developed Texas. This details each of the great oil families and it follows the oil finds and the great oil families from the beginning to the present. This is a GREAT listen and an amazing story of an amazing place and time in our history.
