Overview

From a naturalist point of view, Connor recounts the adventures he had as a wildland firefighter. From the Chicken Complex, the Happy Camp Complex, and the Yellowstone Fires of 1988, to single tree fires in wilderness with miles to hike to reach them, these stories run the gamut. With a progression of the author's maturity from eager, but not-to-intelligent beginner, to a seasoned leader, these stories mix a fight for nature to rule Her land and a fight to preserve the homes of people nestled against the edges of wilderness. "Connor's unique account of wildland firefighting gives an insider's perspective on the rigors and issues surrounding this hot and politically charged topic. Set in some of the most breath-taking natural areas of North America, Making the Bear Dance gives a vicarious glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes."
