Growing 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.
