Fire Season: Field Notes from a Wilderness Lookout

Fire Season: Field Notes from a Wilderness Lookout - Philip Connors Went through this book quickly. Very romantic (to me) idea of working in a isolated fire tower for the summer season of fire watching. Connors writes of his own experiences (he's done it for 8 years) and adds information about the Forest Service's policies on fires over the years and interesting bits about other firewatchers such as Jack Kerouac (Kerouac didn't work in the same forest as Connors). An interesting read.
