Nick Raeside was seven years old when he fought his first fire—barefoot—in New Zealand. After upgrading to sandals, learning to make napalm on the kitchen stove and moving to Canada, he headed straight for the woods. He worked a variety of jobs including forest firefighter, land surveyor’s chainman, forestry official and, of course, slashburner. This is his first book. He lives in Nanoose Bay, BC.
