FIRE ON THE WIND
New York : Delacorte, 1995
up during the Great Depression was not easy. Life in the log camp may not
be what Storie's mother wanted for her but Storie enjoys the life as a
camp cook. Things change when the camp gets word of a forest fire buring
out of control and heading their way. The chapters in this book alternate
between 1933 and present time. In the present, we find Storie trying to
justify the logging trade to her environmentally conscious grandchildren.
Through this book, we learn much about human economic needs and how we
must balance them against our need to preserve nature. For a thrilling
adventure, read FIRE ON THE WIND.
