A detailed look at tragedy of a factory fire during the industrial. This book series has wonderful pictures and really shows you these terrible real-life events. Not for the faint of heart. Each book tries to sum up the steps made to prevent such things from happening again. While there were many laws set up to protect workers after the incident, there are still several deaths in workplaces like this today. Human negligence is alive and well.

I think this is probably meant to be a children's or teen's book but it still provides a good account of this tragedy.
