I'll Never Fight Fire with My Bare Hands Again

Product Description
Product Details


"An utterly fascinating look at the lives of foresters in the first two decades of the twentieth century. The letters address a wealth of important topics from fighting fires, to relations with Indians, to repairing Model T's. Delightful!"--Donald J. Pisani, author of To Reclaim a Divided West: Water, Law, and Public Policy, 1848-1902"This is history with a human face, written from fond memory by people with considerable literary talent. It's a rendition of high adventure, low comedy, and plain hard work in a spectacular landscape."--David A. Clary, author of Timber and the Forest Service "In this rich context, the issues of fire, timber, range, and mineral policy play out against a background of local community politics and ultimately a progressive acceptance of the presence of the ranger, the organization, and the mission of conservation."--William D. Rowley, author of U.S. Forest Service Grazing and Rangelands: A History "Rothman's contribution is to let the foresters speak for themselves, and he has carefully woven his commentary and their remembrances into a multilayered account of what life was like when the timbered northwest was unsurveyed, unmapped, and yet to be clear-cut."--Montana The Magazine of Western History"Rothman draws together oftentimes fascinating passages from forest ranger reminiscences to tell the story from the bottom up."--Western Historical Quarterly "In using the words of those who lived and worked in the inland Northwest at the turn of the century and weaving them together with thoughtful analysis, Rothman has created a valuable social history of the early Forest Service."--Utah Historical Quarterly "A superior, engrossing and readable use of personal remembrances. The book has also an interesting history of the Forest Service in the Inland Northwest for the casual reader."--Denver Westerners Roundup
