The list doesn't include the last couple of years.

Watched this on Netflix a few years ago. Pretty good doc flick: https://www.amazon.com/American-Experience-Burn-Stephen-Ives/dp/B00NGBPWN0

Well, I thought it would work.

I have this problem most of the time when the Seattle Times is the link.  Won't do it again.

On a similar note... anyone have a link to the 1910 weather histories for the epic parade of snowstorms that created the great stevens pass and rodgers pass slides earlier that year?  I wouldnt be all that surprised if there was no good data... it is 1910... but figured id ask.

Further Review     The Big Burn. 

The front page of yesterday's paper had an article about the town of Taft, Montana.  Taft was a very rough place and burned up in the 1910 fires.  The article I tried to reference was a spin off of the Taft article with photos and a graph of Biggest Fires.  The 1910 fire was at number one.

I found the Taft article here. Can't find the other one.

Here's a link to a Spokesman-Review video about the 1910 fire.

restep, no.  It was a page of pictures and a graph.  Kind of a follow up to the Taft article.

The Big Burn did do a good job at redecorating the landscape: http://www.nwhikers.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=7968879&highlight=siamese+lakes

This thread inspired me to read the book "The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt and the Fire that Saved America".  It's really well written and was a good epilogue to the book I recently finished: "President McKinley: Architect of the American Century"
