   schema:description ""As the rural West attracts more and more suburbanites who expect and desire government agencies to keep them safe, ranchers and farmers are increasingly vocal in their opposition to federal regulations and regulators. This book offers the first review of proven methods to create cooperation among these diverse westerners to plan jointly for reducing the dangers of wildfire."--Jacket."@en ;
   schema:description ""Beginning with discussions of the general properties of wildfire, the ways residents can minimize property damage, and lessons for how to avoid conflagrations such as those that have devastated the mountain communities of Los Alamos and Durango, In Fire's Way proposes the formation of partnerships at the local, state, and federal levels to manage fire for the health of local ecosystems. Fire management is inevitably controversial. Proposals for reducing combustibility by increasing commercial logging are as offensive to some citizens as increased government regulations are to others. Prescribed and controlled burns are essential but frightening, especially since the Cerro Grande fire of 2000, a prescribed burn that got away from its crew.""@en ;
