With walls of fire scorching the landscape, wildfires are fearsome and unstoppable natural disasters. In Wildfire! the 1871 Peshtigo Firestorm, young readers will experience the most destructive wildfire in U.S. history through the compelling story of Mary and Samuel Drew, who survived the advancing firestorm as their friends and neighbors perished. Readers will discover the causes of wildfires, and learn advances in preventing and fighting wildfires since the firestorm of 1871. Gripping four-color photos, maps, and diagrams of wildfires will capture students' attention.
