THE BIG BURN: Teddy Roosevelt and the Fire That Saved America
Timothy Egan.  Tells the story of the "Big Burn," the largest-ever forest fire in America, and the tragedy that cemented Teddy Roosevelt's legacy in the land.  Egan narrates the struggles of the overmatched Forest rangers against the implacable fire with unstoppable dramatic force, through the eyes of the people who lived it.  Equally dramatic, though, is the larger story he tells of President Teddy Roosevelt and his chief forester, Gifford Pinchot.  Pioneering the notion of conservation, the two did nothing less than create the idea of national forests as national treasure, owned by and preserved for every citizen.  In the end, the heroism shown by the rangers turned public opinion permanently in favor of the forests, even as it changed the mission of the Forest Service, with consequences felt in the fires of today.  The Big Burn offers "a dramatic account of the worst wildfire in American history - and how it saved America's forests." 6 x 9, 336p, 20 b&w photos, 2009.
