Angora fire book

Jonah M. Kessel

On June 24, 2007, South Shore history changed forever when a catastrophic wildfire began to rage through South Lake Tahoe. The fire, which destroyed 3,072 acres of forest, claimed 254 homes, displaced 3,500 residents and caused more than $160 million in damage, was a news event the world was audience to.

The Angora fire book chronicles the events that residents of South Lake Tahoe experienced during the summer of 2007. From devastation to restoration, the details of this book are a chapter of Basin history.

This full-color, hardbound book is a collaboration of more than 40 journalists from the Sierra Nevada Media Group who stood at the front lines of the blaze. The book includes never-before-seen images from our journalists, photographs and artwork donated by South Shore community members, and a DVD with a comprehensive image collection set to the music of Lake Tahoe guitarist Darin Talbot.
