was surprising, as were the meticulous methods of investigation used to determine just what happened. This book provided an eye-opening though sad learning curve for me - and I applaud author Maclean for keeping the narrative interesting and provocative.
Sometimes the geography/topography is hard to follow, but after coated 15 or 16 there are maps and pictures of the terrain. Highly recommended.
I was a crew boss on a fire in this area in 1996, have driven all the roads in and around the San Jacinto Ranger District, have hiked a trail or two there and thus am very familiar with the locations involved. The ability and precedence of convicting arsonists for murder is long overdue. I hope that it has provided a deterrent for potential arsonists in southern California. Hopefully some of them have read this book as well.
I hope John Maclean will take up the task and write a book about the Yarnell Hill Fire. I can't think of anyone more qualified and proven than he. I've read all of his books and each one is better than the last. Each needs to be read by all of us in the family. Reading the reports and books like this are essential to reducing casualties in an increasingly dangerous activity.
As far as this book goes, I appreciated the information about the people and their families, the details about fire fighting, but it fell and little short as a true crime book i.e. little about the arson investigation.
