The 1872 Great Boston Fire was barely contained after two days of spreading rapidly across the city, becoming one of the most expensive fire disasters in America. Stephanie Schorow, a seasoned Boston veteran, masterfully recounts the stories and heroics surrounding the fire, those which have all been slowly forgotten by the public. Collaborating with the Boston Fire Historical Society and featuring artwork from the time period, a dramatic narrative retold for a modern audience.
