Fire Season: Field Notes from a Wilderness Lookout by Philip Connors
Fire Season: Field Notes from a Wilderness Lookout

James Kelly, January 3, 2012

For eight years, the author and his dog have hiked into the forests of New Mexico to climb a lookout tower to watch for and report fires over the radio. Five months of the year he basically spends in complete isolation. This book is a chronicle of that time as well as a rumination on loneliness and solitude, nature and work. The book is beautifully written, and full of thoughtfulness and things to stir the reader's thoughts. I loved it, and highly recommend it.
