A detailed historical piece on the fire that burned down much of the city in 1871. It is hard to imagine the devastation that took place but it is even more remarkable how the city closed ranks and rebuilt in a very short time period.

Throughout the book topics and struggles surfaced that had relevance to today and obstacles we face which reinforced an adage, the more things change. So the lessons learned in this great event can still teach us today it seems and recover regardless the blow. ( )

My great-great grandparents lived in Chicago in the 1870s in the area where the fire started and I've always been interested in its history. This book is fascinating and very informative. It's more than just a recounting of the fire itself. The author explains the political and social attitudes of the city at the time. This gives you a feel for the era and the circumstances that contributed to the fire.

He also covers the period after the fire which brought aid from around the world along with political corruption, power grabs and discrimination against immigrants. Again his descriptions of the forces at work are excellent and provide a unique understanding of the city.

This is an outstanding history of the Chicago Fire and of the city.

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review from Netgalley. ( )

Well done historical piece with many photographs culled from numerous historical societies and museums. It is also a social history detailing the many immigrants and the why and origins deciding where they would settle. the history of firefighting in America was more than interesting with all the numbers provided. It is a celebration of a city that literally rose from it's own ashes.
I requested and received a free ebook copy from Grove Atlantic via NetGalley. Thank you! ( )
