In 1918 fire protection was rudimentary at best. At worst it was non-existent. In this finely written book, local reporter and Hermantown historian Connie Jacobson details the physical mayhem and emotional shock and trauma that the rural community and its pioneer residents suffered during the most ruinous, devastating, cataclysmic fire in the history of northeastern Minnesota.
