Book authored by two who stayed put during wildfire

One of two co-authors of a new book detailing the destruction wrought by the province’s devastating 2017 wildfire season will soon visit Kamloops to speak on his experience.

Captured by Fire: Surviving British Columbia’s New Wildfire Reality is the work of Fred Reid and Chris Czajkowski. Reid is a homesteader and debut author while Czajkowski is a wilderness dweller and bestselling author.

Reid’s presentation will focus on the experience of the authors, who each stayed behind to protect property, animals and livelihoods in remote areas after being ordered to evacuate due to encroaching wildfire.

The free event will take place at the Kamloops Library, 465 Victoria St., on Wednesday, Nov. 13, at 6 p.m.
