"Exploring the place of fire in nature, Simon explains that...forest fires have important functions in the ecosystem. With a brilliantly clear and colorful photograph facing each page of text, the book describes the causes and the progression of the wildfires that burned areas of Yellowstone National Park in 1988, explains how the fires were beneficial in many ways, and shows the regeneration of the forests. Lucid writing and excellent book design contribute to the overall effectiveness ofthe book.--Booklist.
