BETWEEN TWO FIRES:

A FIRE HISTORY OF CONTEMPORARY AMERICA 


 
From a fire policy of prevention at all costs to today's restored burning, Between Two Fires is America's history channeled through the story of wildland fire management. 

Stephen J. Pyne tells of a fire revolution that began in the 1960s as a reaction to simple suppression and single-agency hegemony and then evolved into more enlightened programs of fire management.  It describes the counterrevolution of the 1980s that stalled the movement, the revival of reform after 1994, and the fire scene that has evolved since then. 

The research was sponsored by the USFS, DoI, and the Joint Fire Science Program.
