The Big Burn

The Big BurnThe Big Burn, which hit stores last week, is Timothy Egan’s eagerly anticipated follow up to his 2006 National Book Award winner The Worst Hard Time. In The Big Burn, Egan narrates the struggles of the overmatched rangers against the implacable fire of 1910–the largest forest fire in the nation’s history–with unstoppable dramatic force, through the eyes of the people who lived it.
