A Newberry Honor Book. The great fire of 1871 was one of the most colossal disasters in American history. Overnight, the flourishing city of Chicago was transformed into a smoldering wasteland. The damage was so profound that few people believed the city could ever rise again. By weaving personal accounts of actual survivors with the carefully researched history of Chicago and the disaster, the author constructs a riveting narrative that recreates the event with drama and immediacy. The bottom corners have light wear. ; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall
