FIRESTORM details real-life stories of heroism, duty, survival and gutsy life and death decisions and includes incredible photographs of "Black Saturday," February 7, 2009. Australia's worst-ever natural disaster unfolded like a time bomb waiting to explode. Before the sun set, thousands of acres of blackened landscape would bear the grim reminder of 173 lives lost. This graphic record shows the lead up to the day, each horrific fire and the tragic aftermath, a tragedy beyond belief.
