"A good primer for anyone who wants to understand wildfires." —
"No threat is left untouched in this handbook worthy of a firefighters academy library."
“The Fire Smart Home Handbook is essential reading for people who live in fire-prone areas because it offers practical information on how you can reduce the threat of wildfire against yourself and your neighbors.”
—Paul L. Cooke, director of the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control
"As a warming and drying climate, a history of poor forest management, and rampant development of America's most flammable landscapes bring an explosion of wildfires, Clyde Soles provides a prescription that will help residents of fire-prone forests, grasslands, and bushlands keep their houses from burning. We can only hope that homeowners who don't recognize the threat that wildfires pose to their property find this book before the flames find their homes."
— Michael Kodas, author of High Crimes and associate director of the Center for Environmental Journalism at the University of Colorado
