Join to hear from Robin Lee Carlson, author and illustrator of The Cold Canyon Fire Journals.
The Cold Canyon Fire Journals: Green Shoots and Silver Linings in the Ashes is the culmination of five years exploring the legacy of the wildfires that have twice burned Stebbins Cold Canyon Reserve. This is a story of fire as a source of transformation and renewal, rewriting wildfire as an elemental power that does not destroy the diverse habitats of California but nourishes them.
The author’s artistic and scientific journey led her to a new understanding of how we must live in relationship to the land. With fire suppression and climate change undermining the regenerative work of wildfire, this story of ecological kinship is an urgent one, showing us how cultivating intimacy with our natural world teaches us what we need to do to sustain it.
The book is fully illustrated with pages from Robin Lee Carlson’s sketchbook in ink and watercolor.
