Ricky's Atlas

Mapping a Land on Fire

Oregon State University Press
On a visit to his uncle’s ranch in eastern Oregon, Ricky Zamora brings his curiosity and love of map-making to the arid landscapes east of the Cascades Mountains. He arrives during a wild thunderstorm, and watches his family and their neighbors scramble to deal with a wildfire that grew from a spark of lightning. Joined by his friend Ellie, he sees how plants, animals, and people adjust to life with wildfires. Designed for upper elementary kids, this sequel to the bestselling Ellie’s Log is based on actual historical, physical and ecological data about the region.
Judith L. Li, a retired associate professor in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Oregon State University, is a stream ecologist. Margaret Herring is a science writer at Oregon State University.
