  1. Steve Wilcox says:

    I finally got around to reading this book. It was interesting, but Dan failed to get all the facts straight. He had his theory and he only interviewed people that would support his premise. There were several eye witnesses to these events and Mr. Schultz failed to get their testimonies. Many of his statements were skewed and failed to present the facts. I guess if the story is sensationalized more people will buy the book.

  2. As stated by Mr. Wilcox above Mr.Schultz got a lot of the information only partially correct. One of his photos is miss labeled as to location and as you can see by my name (refer to page 125) he got that wrong as well. I retired in 1999 from the National Park Service NOT the US Forest Service a different agency. He should have contacted the people he referred to and confirmed not only their name but work affiliation.

    I could have confirmed several of his assumptions about information sharing by searchers and the total Logistical support that was given to all Sheriff offices by the Volunteer Fire Departments of the region.
