Traces the impact of fire in Australia, from its influences on vegetation to its use by Aborigines and European settlers.
This is a phenomenal piece of research and writing, an epic that moves from prehistoric geology to contemporary firefighting theory and draws on an array of natural and social sciences to do so. This is geographical writing at its best and most exhaustive and will intrigue anyone interested in Australia, the environment or human civilization. -- San Francisco Chronicle
