Format: Paperback
I'm reading the most amazing book, given to me as a gift. Ordinarily I don't read fiction but this novel, Prairie Fire, written by Dan Armstrong of Eugene Oregon, is a fabulous read. It's unbelievably current, reads like a thriller, totally absorbing, and covers everything immediate: grain shortages and grain markets, family farmers organizing against government and agribusinesses, oil pipelines and depletion, Central Asia, Afghanistan wars and terrorists, Washington's power players (the establishment), the CIA and its drug connection, the chemical industry, aerospace industry, defense industry, electronics, surveillance. I mean it's all there. The book is an unexpected treat, totally compelling and difficult to put down. The author has done his homework.

Prairie Fire is the unlikely but highly satisfying story of a farmers' rebellion, initiated by a farm leader with a mission to save the soil, rendered barren by chemicals, to limit manipulation of grain prices by international corporations and to return profit to the family farm. It is set in the not-too-distant future when global warming is beginning to take its toll. The hero is a man of exceptional character, a former colonel, who reluctantly agrees to lead the fight. Prairie Fire has a wide scope, ranging from Kansas to Washington, D.C. (politics of course), to Newport R.I. (for a look at the obscenely rich), to Kazakstan to Singapore and beyond. The characters include farmers, CIA operatives, Senators, the President, commodities brokers, journalists, socialites, a basketball star, a right wing militia leader and Chinese warlords. There is adventure, sex and romance. The book is page-turner, filled with twists of plot. There is clearly a political/social agenda, an exceptionally timely one that needs to be put forth, but agenda or not, it is a good read. Highly recommended

I liked Prairie Fire. The style reminds me of Tom Clancy; interesting premise with lots of sub plots twisted together. Engaging cast of characters. Very plausible story line. This book was hard to put down. If you want a good, long plot-driven novel you can sink your teeth into, give this one a try.

I enjoyed this a lot. Very well-written story and a great look into the workings of the farm economy.

My only complaint: Too many subplots that detracted from the main storyline.

But for those interested in politics, it's a great read.

This is a remarkable book! I must say that I am in tears as I write this. We must wake up an realize that we are not in control of our government.
Could this be a call for us to become what our forefathers dreamt we should be? We must become aware and active to insure that WE THE PEOPLE are the voice of our Government! We must pull our heads our of this sand!

I like novels that inform me as well as being entertaining, and Prairie Fire gets five stars on both counts. Armstrong's book is based on an accurate map of the world (how our current economic and political systems operate, and the problems we face as a result)-- something we'd all do well to have. It's also well-written and suspenseful, has characters the reader either cares about or despises, and includes romance, sex, and action. What more could you want?
