BOOK: Ancient Fire, Modern Fire: Understanding and Living With Our Friend & Foe
by Einar Jensen
Creating fire is easy, yet understanding and learning to live with this friend and foe has never been easy; stopping fire is a dangerous—often deadly—pursuit. Drawing on his experiences as an environmental historian, firefighter and life safety educator, author Einar Jensen presents an eye-opening look at fire and our history of dealing with it, then gives us the tools for being responsible and prepared—as parents, as communities, and as homeowners in the wildland urban interface.
