The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt and the Fire that Saved America by Timothy Egan

“This history of one of America’s largest fires at the beginning of the 20th century, reads like an adventure tale.  Teddy Roosevelt’s initiative to preserve large tracts of unspoiled American land, might have taken a different turn if this fire had not occured.  The story of the president, firefighters, and others behind the national parks movement is interesting and very timely considering the green-themed buzz of the moment.”
