DESCRIPTION:
With the start of every bushfire season and the first threatening hints of burning eucalypt in the air, we are reminded, no matter where we live, that bushfire is an inescapable reality in Australia. In Burn, Paul Collins tells the epic story of bushifire in Australia, drawing on accounts of the most devastating conflagrations in Australia's European history - from the 1851 Black Thursday fire (which burnt out one-quarter of Victoria), to the 1939 Black Friday fires (which took many lives and destroyed thousands of hectares in Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and Tasmania), the Canberra inferno of 2003, and Black Saturday of February 2009. Frightening, compelling, vivid, and provocative, Burn reveals the stories of heroism, stupidity, political incompetence, and environmental vandalism. This is the grand narrative of bushfire in Australia, the most fire-prone land on Earth.
