In The Worst Hard Time, Timothy Egan put the environmental disaster of the Dust Bowl at the center of a rich history, told through characters he brought to indelible life. Now he performs the same alchemy with the Big Burn, the largest-ever forest fire in America, a tragedy that cemented Teddy Roosevelt's legacy.

Mesmerizing listening, and a real insight into fiesty Teddy Roosevelt and the men and politics of his times. The birth of the US Forest Rangers, and the incredible, harrowing, almost incomprehensible forest fire that blackened Montana, Idaho, Washington, Alberta, and British Columbia in the summer of 1910.
