In 1994, a wildfire on Colorado's Storm King Mountain was
wrongly identified at the outset as occurring in South Canyon.
This unintentional, seemingly minor human error was the first in
a string of mistakes that would be compounded into one of the
greatest tragedies in the annals of firefighting. Before it was
done, fourteen courageous firefighters--men and women, hotshots,
smoke jumpers, and helicopter crew--would lose their lives battling
the deadly so-called South Canyon blaze.
John N. Maclean's award-winning national bestseller Fire on the
Mountain is a stunning reconstruction of the killer conflagration
and its aftermath--a page-turning true adventure of nature at its
most unforgiving, and a powerful, indelible portrait of a unique
breed of heroes who regularly and without question place their
lives on the line.
