Canada's largest city often makes national headlines, not only for its successes and innovations, but also for its resilience in times of suffering. This collection highlights the wrath of Hurricane Hazel that pounded city homes; it remembers the urgent screams heard amidst the tangled wreckage of a nightmarish subway crash; and it recounts one icy night in 1904 when flames engulfed city buildings. These tragedies, and others, epitomize the strength and character of Torontonians in the face of disaster.
