This is not an ordinary book: it's a BookCrossing book! BookCrossing books are world travelers - they like to have adventures and make new friends...and every once in a while they even write home to say what they've been doing.

One of our country's worst workplace disasters, and possibly still the largest number of deaths from a single business in one day: the catalyst for many reforms...but also a terrible human tragedy. Von Drehle manages to present many sides of this event and keeps the memory of many of the lost alive in this fascinating book.

I read this years ago but think it's a story worth sharing. This copy came from Goodwill; larger photo here.

Here's another copy on my BookCrossing shelf.

Oh dear, this came in a while ago when I started receiving birthday packages so I held it for today. Sorry! Anyway, I'm thrilled to have this book that's been on my wishlist for quite a while. Thank you!
