The series follows the life of a character, Mill Meacham, ostensibly a fourth-generation Forest Service employee as she battles personal and professional adversity. The plot and sub-plots of the trilogy utilize Mill as symbolic of the 21st Century Forest Service and conservation movement in the U.S., beginning life in the 1970s and challenged by almost insurmountable forces while trying to come of age and make a difference. While A Deep Brown Crucible relies less on satyric elements than the previous two books, the novel digs much deeper into the unproductive and sometimes harmful relationships the conservation movement has with environmental advocates, agency careerists, and politicians. The story ultimately defines the struggle as a spiritual one and delves into a possibly more satisfying future for all.
