yokut Linda Lookout
50th Anniversary Ed.   by Keith Hoofnagle
  72 pages
  978-0 87961-283-2
  Price: $12.95
A great history, mostly by illustrations and cartoons of Fire Lookouts in America, written by the author while living and working 24 hours a day, seven days a week in a 14' x 14' fire lookout forty feet high atop a mountain peak. Lookouts were reached by a ladder with sturdy railing and wide rungs. There was a lookout lingo of basic codes to report location and fires by a radio, which was also valued as a companion to the outside world and other lookouts. A packer with a mule brought their mail, supplies and water. Most terrifying, to even the most seasoned fire-spotter, were the horrendous summer thunder and lightning storms.
