Mark's one match "Little House" campfire

"When the space was clear of grass, Pa laid a handful of dry grass in its center.
From the creek bottoms he brought an armful of twigs and dead wood.
He laid small twigs and larger twigs and then the wood on the handful of dry grass, and he lighted the grass.
The fire crackled merrily inside the ring of bare ground that it couldn't get out of."
from Little House on the Prairie
