Synopsis:
"THE DRAMATIC TRUE ACCOUNT OF THE SOUTH CANYON

FIRE -- THE DEVASTATING FOREST FIRE THAT TOOK THE

LIVES OF FOURTEEN FIREFIGHTERS"

In this acclaimed bestseller of investigative journalism, John N. Maclean chronicles the deadly 1994 Colorado forest fire that was wrongly identified at the outset as occurring in South Canyon. This misidentification was the first in a string of seemingly minor human errors that would be compounded into one of the greatest tragedies in the annals of firefighting as fourteen men and women firefighters -- experts in their field -- lost their lives battling the South Canyon blaze.

This stunning reconstruction of the fire and its aftermath, drawn from Maclean's exhaustive research and countless interviews, reveals fascinating insights into what went wrong, and how so many top-notch firefighters fell victim to nature at its most unforgiving. A page-turning adventure narrative brimming with action and intensity, "Fire on the Mountain" offers a powerful and indelible profile of a special breed of people who put their lives on the line as part of their daily jobs.


Review:
"The New York Times Book Review""Fire on the Mountain" renews our awe of and reverence for fire's primal, inextinguishable essence, which crosses state lines, lifetimes and generations.
