The 2000-2002 Forest Fires in the Western United States
In the years between 2000 and 2002, forest fires ripped through much of the American West, with millions of acres of forest destroyed. This book recounts the story of those 2000-2002 fires, providing an in-depth look at the making of forest fires, how they start, and how they benefit the forests. It also examines the changing forest fire policy and uses fascinating quotes from a forest worker who describes, in first-hand accounts, the harrowing work conducted by the forest fighters throughout the Western United States.
