"Off-site fire use by hunter-gatherers and other people practicing traditional subsistence strategies is omnipresent, carried out by males, females, and children and by individuals and groups of all sizes"(311).
"People use fire as a tool off-site for a range of activities, largely irrespective of gender and age"(311). Note: These are descriptive generalizations.
