FIRE WEATHER A True Story from a Hotter World

by | Read by Alan Carlson

Contemporary Culture • 14.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Alan Carlson delivers this intense account of a massive fire with controlled urgency. His slight Canadian accent adds to the narration. He measures his delivery, deliberately paces the stories, and unspools the remarkable trajectory of the wildfire that ultimately engulfed one million and a half acres, burned for 15 months, and caused the evacuation of around 90,000 residents of the Alberta city of Fort McMurray--a petro boom town--surrounded by forests that were immolated. This colossal conflagration began in May 2016 and was called the Fort McMurray Fire and, ultimately, "the Beast." This audiobook tells the climate-change backstory in meticulous detail while describing what happened to the city and its citizens. Subtitled "A True Story from a Hotter World," the story is ominous, predictive, and frightening. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2023]
