Reviews

"Vivid prose as electrifying as any beach novel you're likely to find this summer." --San Francisco Chronicle

"This day-by-day account of the defense of Tassajara Zen Mountain Center against massive wildfires in summer 2008 brings a Buddhist twist to the age-old preoccupation of humans living with--and trying to control--fire." --Publishers Weekly (starred)

"An absorbing account of how two priesthoods--professional wildland firefighters and Zen monastics--confronted the fire's threat." --Los Angeles Times

"This book reads like a hair-raising adventure novel." --Shambhala Sun

"Not only a gripping narrative of the 2008 wildfire events, but also how Zen allows people to meet such colossal crisis with a focused mind." --Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"Fire Monks demonstrates the clarity of thought and action that can spring from Zen practice." --Tricycle
