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."
