  • Résumé

The New York heat wave of August 1896 was the worst of the era, killing close to 1,500 people over ten days of suffocating, unrelenting misery. Drawing together the events of the heat wave, and the rise of Theodore Roosevelt, this title tells the story of the catastrophic heat-wave that brought Gilded Age New York to its knees.
