Summary
"Recounts the true story of one of the worst fire disasters in US history, [following] the tragic stories of the Cook family--including children Donald, Eleanor, and Edward, who were in the audience that day--and 15-year-old Robert Segee, a circus employee with an incendiary past. Drawing on primary sources and interviews with survivors, author Laura Woollett [examines] several decades of investigations"--Amazon.com
