"'Fire on the Mountain' is a novel about a man who decides to defy the whole United States government. That man is John Vogelin, owner of a tract of land in New Mexico. The story is told through the eyes of Billy, his grandson, who lives most of the year in Pennsylvania. He always spends his summers with his grandfather, but this summer is different from all the ones that have passed and from any that he will ever know again." - from a blurb on the dust jacket.
