<<Because California indigenous people burned regularly, the fires  
weren't extremely hot or big compared to wild fires. Apparently the  
flames were about two feet high. How this compares to a propose  
contraption, I have no idea.  Somehow I can't quite get behind the  
idea of using such a device on the land.>>

In Changes to the Land, Cronan notes that there were instances where  
the native american's burning or the forest undergrowth would get out  
of control and do serious damage..
