Description
"On December 6, 1917, two ships—the Mont Blanc and the Imo—collided in the narrows of the harbor of Halifax, Nova Scotia. The Mont Blanc, with 2,925 tons of explosives in barrels and kegs, caught on fire and set off a chain of events that destroyed much of the city. The 12,000 buildings within a 16-mile radius were damaged. More than 1,600 people were killed, 6,000 were injured, and many were blinded. The explosives created a slick black rain that fell across the city. The Imo spun across the harbor, crowded with ships bound for Europe, and ended up with its stern partially underwater. Mac Donald, a native of Halifax, offers a minute-by-minute account of the disaster. She describes how many of the people miraculously survived, the extraordinary relief efforts, and the medical procedures in eye surgery and pediatrics. With 40 black and white illustrations, her book captures in vivid detail the history of this catastrophe."—Booklist
