Summary
Bay Area-based reporters for The Guardian, Alastair Gee and Dani Anguiano, relate the story of the worst American wildfire in a century, weaving together a portrait of the remarkable California community of 27,000 souls, destroyed wholesale in a fire that left 86 dead, while offering a bigger-picture exploration of the science of wildfires in a time of dramatic climate change. Alastair Gee is a seasoned science/nature writer based in San Francisco and Dani Anguiano is a local reporter from nearby Chico, who personally knows many of the heroes, first responders, and victims.
