I finished John Gierach's Dumb Luck and the Kindness Of Strangers during the past couple of weeks of "smoke season". I really enjoy his books but feel intimidated about writing a review of a great writers book. Luckily for me California Fly-fisher reviewed it in their latest issue. So my advice is to read the review then read the book. You should have plenty of time to read both of these before the air clears.
