Synopses & Reviews
It is 1988, and Yellowstone Park is on fire. Among the thousands of summer warriors battling to save Americas crown jewel, is single mother Clare Chance. Having just watched her best friend, a fellow Texas firefighter, die in a roof collapse, she has fled to Montana to try and put the memory behind her. Shes not the only one fighting personal demons as well as the fiery dragon threatening to consume the park. Theres Chris Deering, a Vietnam veteran helicopter pilot, seeking his next adrenaline high and a good time that doesnt include his wife, and Ranger Steve Haywood, a man scarred by the loss of his wife and baby in a plane crash. They rally around Clare when tragedy strikes yet again, and she loses a young soldier to a firestorm. Three flawed, wounded people; one horrific blaze. Its tentacles are encircling the park, coming ever closer, threatening to cut them off. The landmark Old Faithful Inn and Park Headquarters at Mammoth are under siege, and now theres a helicopter down, missing, somewhere in the path of the conflagration. And Clares daughter is on it.
"She has done her homework well and the setting is completely accurate. This is a compelling work and I had difficulty putting it down." —Bob Barbee, Yellowstone Superintendent 1983-1994
