Timothy Egan: The Big Burn
This week's guest on The Write Question is Timothy Egan, a Pulizter Prize-winning reporter who writes a weekly column for the New York Times. He's also the author of five nonfiction books, two of which have won National Book Awards.
His latest book, The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt and the Fire that Saved America, tells the story of America's worst forest fire, which happened near Missoula, Montana, in 1910. And Teddy Roosevelt's triumphant struggle to save our forests from greedy robber barons like William A. Clark and J.D. Rockefeller.
