In the summer of 1988, dry lightning sparked a fire in the parched and drought ridden landscape of Yellowstone Park, igniting a blaze that would scorch over a third of the park area. Song of Fire, is a narrative poem, telling the story of the conflagration that raged unabated for months until a snow of intense severity extinguished the flames. That winter surviving Fauna, exhausted from fire and weakened by hunger, died in greater numbers than those claimed by the fire. And then life in the park begins anew.
