Forged In Fire
Essays By Idaho Writers
edited by Mary Clearman Blew
Living as they do in a state that nearly every summer faces the threat and challenges of wildfire, Idaho writers are exceptionally well equipped to recount firsthand experiences. Featuring essays by both established and novice writers and including two prize-winning stories, Forged in Fire covers topics from escaping forest fires and smoke jumping, to fighting house fires and making campfires. The authors deal with human responses to fire—fear, courage, sadness—and the environmental response of regeneration. 

As Americans grapple increasingly with the proliferation of forest fires and the environmental consequences, this collection has an especially timely resonance.
