Compiling 130 of the best photographs and stories from the long hot summer of 2003, senior editors and photographers from The Vancouver Sun and The Province newspapers reflect on the historic, economic, and emotional toll of the fires. There are three sections on the main fire areas -- Kamloops, Kelowna, and Cranbrook -- that delve into the tragedies and the triumphs of the fires that burned (and in many cases continue to burn) in those regions.

Included are many tales of the men and women -- including firefighters who had lost their own homes -- who risked their lives on the front lines, volunteers who gave generously of their time and money, and friends and neighbours, and even strangers, from all over the country, who rallied to help those in need.

Finally, an epilogue reflects on the rebuilding process and what's ahead for the people and the communities affected by the devastation.
