World Fire

The Culture of Fire on Earth

World Fire is the story of how fire and humans have coevolved. The two are inseperable, and together they have repeatedly remade the planet.

Reviews

"Pyne considers the evolution of fire in such diverse regions as Australia, Africa, Brazil, Sweden, Greece, Iberia, Russia, and India and then ponders Antarctica, the land without fire. As he examines changing techniques for and attitudes toward fire control, Pyne challenges our concepts of naturre and wilderness and explains why the study and management of fire have tremendous environmental, cultural, and political implications."—Booklist
