The book explores gender relations in wildfire resilience through the stories of men and women surviving, fighting, evacuating, living and working with wildfire. It examines wildfire awareness and preparedness amongst women, men, households, communities and agencies, in southeast Australia and the west coast United States, and especially the culturally and historically distinct gender relations that underpin wildfire resilience.
