Product Description: 

Inspired by Timothy Egan's bestseller, this is the dramatic story of an catastrophic 1910 wildfire that defined the fledgling U.S. Forest Service and the nation's fire policy for the rest of the 20th century and beyond. In the current American landscape, this film provides a cautionary tale of heroism and sacrifice, arrogance and greed, hubris and, ultimately, humility, in the face of nature's frightening power.
