THE BIG BURN Teddy Roosevelt & the Fire That Saved America

by | Read by Robertson Dean

History • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

The Great Fire of 1910, which burned through Washington, Idaho, and Montana, was a pivotal event in American history. It galvanized the nascent conservation movement that President Teddy Roosevelt championed, made a national figure out of Gifford Pinchot and saved his newly created U.S. Forest Service, and led to both legislative and social changes in the country. Robertson Dean performs admirably and is a good match for the text. He uses his baritone to create a sense of urgency and alarm when the fire is raging, then switches to a more sober tone when reading the narrative. His characters are decidedly low-key, and he lets the text speak for Roosevelt, rather than attempting to give voice to the voluble president.
