Wisconsin Historical Society Press: The Great Peshtigo Fire: An Eyewitness Account (2nd. ed.) The story is written by Reverand Peter Pernin, who was in Peshtigo the night of the fire and survived. I purchased the 1st edition. Read about 1/4 of the text and had to stop reading; the book is so well written, so detailed, I started having nightmares . . .
