A detailed and riveting account of the events that led up to and followed the biggest workplace tragedy in New York prior to 9/11.
The fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in 1911 killed nearly 150 people who either were locked into the fire and burned to death or leaped from the windows 9 stories up. The tragedy of this fire brought about changes in workplace conditions and new laws about building safety and regulating working situations so that people wouldn't be locked into unsafe sweatshops. Received starred review from School Library Journal.
