Today’s headlines reveal a new reality of devastating megafires in places like Greenland, Central Africa, and California. Massive wildfires loom as costly, deadly threats—and demand radical new approaches to forests, wildfires, and our relationship with the natural world.
Now, award-wrinning journalist and explorer Edward Struzik delivers an update of his 2017 title Firestorm. Struzik confronts the new reality of wildfire, offering a deftly woven tale of science, economics, politics, and human determination. He visits scorched earth from Alaska to Maine, and introduces the scientists, firefighters, and resource managers making the case for a different approach to managing wildfire in the 21st century.
The photos below offer a glimpse into some of the stories that Struzik shares in Firestorm.
