The essays are thematically arranged in five chapters: Fire, Forestry, Burn Area Recovery, Environmental Education, and Recreation. But although the chapter titles are slanted toward the professional, the stories Stuever tells run the gamut from the ordinary to the extraordinary, from the ho-hum work-a-day world of planting trees ("Green Side Up, Okay?) to thrilling accounts of fighting fires ("Fire") and sad tales of bark beetles ("Dying Pinyons").Read more ›
From the danger of firefighting to land stewardship, forest management, and environmental education in the real world, Stuever provides the reader thought-provoking observances that can be read in two or three page 'bytes' and mulled over for hours. An excellent book to distract you from the artificial environment of modern life.
