    Well written history of a tragic and amazing event

    Firestorm at Peshtigo is a concise but thorough story-telling of the people and events leading up to the fire, during, and after. The authors introduce you to the people and the places involved so that you begin to know them, making this disaster all the more real to the reader. As I read the accounts of people attempting to escape the fire I found myself sitting on the edge of my seat, hoping they would make it - but of course they didn't. They've been dead for 140 years. This book is a historical account of events, but one that puts you in the middle of it. It tells you the scientific and historical facts, but brings the stories of the people affected to life. A great read for anyone who loves history and the human element.

    5 ALARM BOOK

    This was a very difficult book to put down. It caught my attention from the start. This was an extremely well written account of the fire, it's buildup, and aftermath. The research was phenomenal. In addition to the story I particularly liked the notes section in the back of the book that explained where the authors got their resarch. I was surprised to learn that the information and weather patterns from the Peshtigo firestorm were used as resarch data for the Allied forces during WWII. A must read for anyone who enjoys American history and non-fiction weather related stories.
