Written by a pair of Bay Area reporters who covered the story and its aftermath extensively, Fire in Paradise is a fast-paced narrative of the disaster based on hundreds of in-depth interviews with residents, firefighters, police and scientific experts. Alastair Gee and Dani Anguiano capture an historic event; explore the reasons behind the increasing frequency and force of wildfires in our time and describe the moving efforts to raise Paradise from the ruins.
