A San Francisco Chronicle Best Book of the Year
A Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year

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.”
–Publisher’s Weekly (STARRED REVIEW)

“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.”
