In August of 1973, a young man from Missouri lands a job as a wildland firefighter in a small Montana town. It changes his life forever. Unaware of the dangers of firefighting, his first encounters with the thunderous drone of an airtanker dropping its load, the crackling of flames in tree tops, and the glow of red embers at nightfall enthral him. In the pages of the Fury of the Beast, he passionately shares photos and vivid descriptions of his long career as a fire fighter. In readable prose, he highlights the changes he has witnessed in the forest landscape and seasonal climate shifts that present us with the challenges of mega fires of today. (From Amazon)
