 Smokechaser, a book by Warren Yahr


Warren Yahr turned every boy's dream of being on his own into reality when he signed up to work in an isolated lookout watching over huge stands of virgin fir, pine, hemlock, cedar, and spruce in Idaho backcountry. Yahr warmly and humorously describes how he provided for the necessities of life in the middle of the wilderness through a combination of traditional solutions and creative adaptations.

Staff Comment: Endearing story of a young man striking out on his own into wild Idaho. Had me seeking out fire stands on hikes whenever I could.
