Black fire the true story of the original Tom Sawyer---and of the mysterious fires that baptized gold rush-era San Francisco by Robert Graysmith ( )
7 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When twenty-eight-year-old San Francisco Daily Morning Call reporter Mark Twain met Tom Sawyer at a local bathhouse in 1863, he was seeking a subject for his first novel. Twain learned that a dozen years earlier, the then eighteen-year-old, New York-born Sawyer had been a "Torch Boy," one of the youths who raced ahead of the volunteer firemen's hand-drawn engines at night carrying torches to light the way. At that time, a mysterious serial arsonist known by some as "The Lightkeeper" was in the process of burning San Francisco to the ground six times in eighteen months. Black Fire is the most thorough and accurate account of Sawyer's relationship with Mark Twain and of the six devastating incendiary fires that baptized one of the modern world's favorite cities. Drawing on archival sources, bestselling author Robert Graysmith vividly portrays the gritty, corrupt, and violent world of Gold Rush-era San Francisco. By chronicling how Sawyer took it upon himself to investigate, expose, and stop the arsonist, Black Fire details for the first time Sawyer's remarkable life and illustrates why Twain would later feel compelled to name his iconic character after his San Francisco buddy when he wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
