Linda Strader’s New Book: Summers of Fire
The Tucson area has a large community of writers. One of these is Linda Strader who in the 1970s was a firefighter for the U. S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management, one of the first woman to serve in this intrepid, male-only fraternity. Summers of Fire is a memoir of her experiences during the seven years she fought fires from Arizona to Alaska, until an injury forced her to resign. Visit her Summers of Fire blog to learn more about Linda and read the first chapter of her book.
Linda has for many years written regularly for Tucson Gardening Examiner and Santa Rita Mountains Outdoor Recreation Examiner as well as her website organic gardening in the southwest on growing vegetables in the desert.
