Our Move to California
United States Forest Service
With full-color images and black-and-white photographs, Steve Wilson chronicles his idyllic boyhood life in the mountains of Pennsylvania. The family’s reluctant move to California is an invitation to new adventures. The story expands as Steve and companions experience the lessons of nature’s way in the rough and free life of a band of young men working as firefighters in the early years of the US Forest Service:
