But some fires burn out of control, destroying everything and everyone in their path. In this book, you'll find out about: how and why wildfires happen how different groups, from Native Americans to colonists, from conservationists to modern industrialists, have managed forests and fire the biggest wildfires in American history--how they began and dramatic stories of both rescue and tragedy what we're doing today to fight forest fires.
