On August 28th 1989 the Montagne Sainte-Victoire was consumed by flames. The fire lasting 3 days and 3 nights ravaged over 12.3 thousand acres and became one of the worst ecological disasters in southern France during the previous century.

The next day, as the the first blackened and distorted images of the mountain were shown, national and local authorities would become sharply aware and usher in a deep restructuring of fire prevention methods for the protection, equipping and organising of forest massifs.

With more than 3,7 million acres of forest and a afforestation rate close to 48%, the French region Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur itself represents 10% of the forest area of ​​France. This territory is one of the most exposed to fires all over Europe and with more drought between 2016 and 2017, more than 1,300 fires starts have been recorded during this period. 

Within this book Arnaud Teicher documents the effects that wildfire has had on the region.
