Product Details

Praise

“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
