    Black Saturday at Steels Creek
    Black Saturday at Steels Creek
    <p>The Black Saturday bushfires killed 173 people &amp;#8212; wreaking a greater human toll than any other fire in Australia's history. Ten of those victims died in Steels Creek, a small community on Melbourne's outskirts. It was a beautiful place, which its residents had long treasured and loved. By the evening of 7 February 2009, it felt like a battlefield.</p><br/><br/><p>Prize-winning historian Peter Stanley tells the dramatic stories of this small piece of country on that one terrifying evening &amp;#8212; of epic fights to save houses, of escapes, and of deaths. He also tells the tale of a community &amp;#8212; of people's attachments to the valley and to each other &amp;#8212; and how, over the weeks and years that followed, they lived with the aftermath of the fire.</p><br/><br/><p>The most detailed account of any one community to emerge from the fire, <i>Black Saturday at Steels Creek</i> shows what Black Saturday means not only for Steels Creek, but also for Australia as a whole.</p>
