Description
World Fire is the story of how fire and humans have coevolved. The two are inseparable, and together they have repeatedly remade the planet.

"Stephen J. Pyne writes about fire as if he were on fire, with searing, consuming heat and light. When he looks at fire he sees not biological catastrophe but social illumination and natural renewal.... This book will change the way you view fire -- and the way you see us routinely fighting it". -- Seattle Times

"Pyne considers the evolution of fire in such diverse regions as Australia, Africa, Brazil, Sweden, Greece, Iberia, Russia, and India and then ponders Antarctica, the land without fire. As he examines changing techniques for and attitudes toward fire control, Pyne challenges our concepts of nature and wilderness and explains why the study and management of fire have tremendous environmental, cultural, and political implications". -- Booklist
