This is required reading for a deeper understanding of Chicago's early years.

Author Donald L. Miller recounts the turbulent history of Chicago in the nineteenth century: the city's raw beginnings, its explosive early growth, the tragedy of the Great Fire and the city's dramatic rebirth as the host of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. The book describes in detail how Chicago became host to a new kind of architecture and home to visionaries like Louis Sullivan and Daniel Burnham.
