Wildfires may be just a newsflash on Long Island where the cool fall air does not signal a water shortage. But these are perhaps the two most significant issues of the American Southwest. Water is the most ignored at-risk commodity in the artificially lush Los Angeles area that has literally made water run uphill as it carelessly drained the water recourses of the state. In parallel, the recent rash of suspicious fires is a scary reminder of the death and destruction that sears through the region each year. The tinderbox of homes and trees are clearly at the mercy of nature and sociopathic arsonists testing skill and daring of the first responders…. the thin line of defense against wildfires.
About the Book: Tunnel Visions
Working 5 miles inside a water tunnel in 1971, Willie Carter was one of 17 men killed in a methane explosion. The ensuing underground fire burned for two days before Los Angeles firefighters could attempt a rescue in what became known in California as the Sylmar Tunnel disaster.
Tunnel Visions, a work of “faction,” blends fact and fiction, weaving together the historical facts of the Sylmar disaster, the current struggle for control over California's diminishing water supply, and a fictional plot to attack Los Angeles' water delivery system.
Tunnel Visions occurs on a single day, during which Nick and Cindi experience a series of harrowing events as they attempt to stop an act of eco terrorism.
Kurt Kamm’s expertise in the parallel issues of water and fire educates his readers in the telling of a fictional story laced in facts … providing a deeper understanding of the men and women across the country who fight the fires … and the politics. au
