The Forest of Fire follows the journey of a forest from pristine wild to human developed and the roles and risks of fire in ecology and our lives. Available now on Amazon in paperback

The forest needs to mend its relationship with fire. A forest fire has struck and burned down all the wood. Will the forest grow back? What will the plants, animal’s, and people do?

Experience the magic that can be held in the seed and roots of plants. Experience the destruction that can be caused by catastrophic fires.

How will forest and people recover?
