The fire. It was the deadliest fire in North America. In less than sixteen hours, 1.8 million acres -- 2,400 square miles -- burned. People fled. There was no time to react. Thousands of lives were lost, but no help came.

The heroes. Jean Pierre and Father Peter Pernin, a half-breed Indian and a priest. Two contrasting characters collide, Native American vs. Catholic beliefs, but together they're destined to lead the people through.

The mystery. Why did it happen? The Great Peshtigo Fire of 1871 is lost somewhere in history even though it is still listed among America's top ten worst natural disasters. Nobody ever determined the cause. Theories exist, yet none can match the vivid descriptions of actual eye witnesses.

554 pages in length, Colors of the Firestorm: The Great Peshtigo Fire is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the historical fiction category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Colors of the Firestorm meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $24.95.

About the author:

Linda Brieno resides with her husband and granddaughter, Melany Brieno, on two hundred wooded acres in the forestland of northeastern Wisconsin. The author of two other successful novels, this story proved a challenge. Thankfully, with help from the community, many of whom had ancestors who were survivors of the fire, this novel was produced. With her background as a trauma nurse specialist, Brieno is able to capture subtle details and to give special insight.
