The McPhee piece was a very short story in one of his collections. I'm 90% sure it was not in 'irons in the fire', though. I'll see if I can find it.
His book "The Control Of Nature", specifically the middle section, specifically the part where they were driving bulldozers across flowing lava with guys with heat-resistant boots marching along on the flowing lava spraying each other and the bulldozers with hoses to keep everything from melting, never fails to make me stand up and start pacing around while reading it. That's some stirring nonfiction.
