New Fire Season

So whenever I see an article on forest fires, I’m reminded of the book I read a few years ago entitled “Fire Season: Field Notes from a Wilderness Lookout” by Philip Conners. I must admit that while it sounds scary, it’s something that has always intrigued me.

Unfortunately, times have changed and this article goes to talk about that. It’s entitled “New era of Western wildfire demands new ways of protecting people, ecosystems” from the University of Colorado at Boulder over at ScienceDaily.

Family of trees

Okay, it’s been a while since I’ve posted and it was because of technical issues. To start back up, I’m still reading the book, The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben and right now he’s talking about how important it is for trees to grow straight. So when I saw this article, I wanted to read it.

The article is entitled “In Poland’s Crooked Forest, a Mystery with No Straight Answer” by Joanna Klein at the New York Times. Hopefully I’ll find the answer. That’s what we librarians do.

Sincerely-
