An interview with John Maclean


KDNK, a public radio station in Carbondale, Colo., regularly interviews High Country News writers and editors, in a feature they call "Sounds of the High Country."

Here, Nelson Harvey talks with John Maclean, author of Fire on the Mountain, a book about the 1994 South Canyon Fire in Colorado, which took 14 lives. Maclean believes the firefighter fatalities in the Yarnell Hill Fire should have been prevented.
