CATASTROPHIC BUSHFIRES RACE UP THE MOUNTAIN INTO A CLOSE-KNIT COMMUNITY FORCED TO FIGHT FOR THEIR LIVES...

In this thrilling recounting, neighbours and friends face death and loss amidst fires surging through mountainous bushland. They confront life and death choices and endure the perils of a fire out of control. Together they fight the raging inferno, desperately protecting their lives and the community they cherish.

Each character responds to the overwhelming threat differently, remaking themselves through the tragedy and devastation as they realise how precious their lives really are.

Despite their fear and loss amongst the flames, love, hope and friendship nurture their survival on the mountain.

"Decades of fire research underpins Ken Strahan’s authentic portrayal of an Australian community in crisis.  This is a great read that is informative, thought-provoking and thoroughly relevant to the lived experience of contemporary Australia." Emeritus Professor John Handmer, RMIT University

“A realistic portrayal of a fire-stricken community that resonates with recent events that will happen again… An excellent and thoughtful book…” Douglas, Indie Book reviewer
