BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - An artist is capturing the heart of the ridge, in the recovery process. 

People, Places, and Pieces of Paradise, a book that shows the inferno, the aftermath, and the recovery from the Camp Fire.

Photo-journalist Doug Keister spent the last eight months documenting what happened. Keister told Action News Now at first he was reluctant about writing the book and telling such a huge story.

"I knew that I needed to do this book because I'm a fan of history and document history and as tragic as it was I knew I needed to do it," Keister said. "I tried to tell the tale of the fire with people rather than just images of the fire."

It took a few hours, but the sun broke through the clouds over most of northern California Tuesday afternoon. The low clouds, fog and light rain showers return to the valley Wednesday, with snowy weather in the mountains.
