Summer Reading

Looking for some summer reading?  Given the active fire season, there are some excellent books on western wildfires and the dangers of wildland firefighting.  Here are three that I recommend.  

I frequently pass the scars created on Storm King Mountain by the South Canyon Fire, which killed 14 firefighters.  It has been an emotional experience ever since I read John Maclean's Fire on the Mountain.  Reading these three books will give you new appreciation for those who put their lives on the line fighting wildland fires, as well as fire weather and physics.
