"This series is perfect. Not only does each title explain clearly and concisely a specific crisis in American history, but it also details how each was resolved and how it impacted people and places for generations to come. . . .Quotes from eyewitnesses are used liberally and add drama and immediacy to the narrative." - School Library Journal

Nonfiction Notes from the Horn Book

"This brief overview of the tragic Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire contains a wealth of gripping details. The swift narrative begins with the blaze that ultimately killed 146 people, and ends with the development of new laws regulating working conditions. Eerie black-and-white photos of structural damage and victims illustrate the magnitude of the destruction, while sidebars expand on the information." - Nonfiction Notes from the Horn Book
