About this book

Smokechasing is an American expression describing the practice of sending firefighters into the wild to track down the source of reported smoke. Pyne, the leading authority on fire, has assembled more material on the history and lore of fire in a collection that focuses on wildland fire and its management, especially the issues surrounding prescribed burning.
