Synopsis

Fire can fascinate, inspire, capture the imagination and bring families and communities together.

It has the ability to amaze, energise and touch something deep inside all of us. For thousands of years, at every corner of the globe, humans have been huddling around fires: from the basic and primitive essentials of light, heat, energy and cooking, through to modern living, fire plays a central role in all of our lives.

The ability to accurately and quickly light a fire is one of the most important skills anyone setting off on a wilderness adventure could possess, yet very little has been written about it.

Through his narrative Hume also meditates on the wider topics surrounding fire and how it shapes the world around us.
