In Fire Season, Philip Connors recounted with lyricism, wisdom and grace his decade as a fire lookout high above remote New Mexico. Now he tells the story of what made solitude on the mountain so attractive.

At the age of twenty-three, Connors was a young man on the make. He’d left behind the Minnesota pig farm on which he’d grown up and the brother with whom he’d never been especially close.

Read more is a searingly honest account of the aftermath of his brother’s shocking death, exploring both the pathos and the unlikely humour of a life unmoored by loss.
