From prehistory to the present-day conservation movement, Stephen Pyne explores the efforts of successive American cultures to master wildfire and to use it to shape the landscape. A timely environmental classic.
Pyne was named by Science magazine as "the world's leading authority on the history of fire."
The narrator of Fire in America, Jack de Golia, served as a firefighter with the National Park Service and then as a fire information officer for the NPS, Bureau of Land Management and US Forest Service. Highlights of his 34-year career include the 1988 Yellowstone fires and the recovery of the Space Shuttle Collumbia in 2003.
The book is published by University of Washington Press. The audiobook is published by University Press Audiobooks.
