ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In the space of a few hours on October 23, 1947, a furious wildfire destroyed almost all of the small western Maine town of Brownfield. Neighbors fought and fled the fire, then returned, determined to rebuild their community as best they could. Drawing on interviews with townspeople, letters, photographs, and newspaper reports, Radner tells an epic story of terror, courage, generosity, and hope.

"You will feel the heat, smell the smoke, and realize along with the characters that we are all vulnerable to the unpredictability of nature out of control. Vulnerable, yes, but not necessarily helpless, defeated or alone." ~Lani Peterson

"Jo Radner allows resilience to be the star of her story." ~Judith Black
