The blaze transformed the flourishing city of Chicago into a smoldering wasteland within hours. The damage was so profound that few people believed the city could ever rise again. But even in a time of deepest despair the people of Chicago found the courage and strength to build their city once again.
This engrossing narrative captivates readers with the details of one of history's most tragic fires and features photos, engravings, and newspaper clippings on nearly every page.
