From the Author
It was a wonderful job, but the highlight was getting to know and work with the Bartolotta family of Bartolotta Fireworks, just outside Milwaukee. I've dedicated Heaven's Fire to late patriarch and founder, Sam Bartolotta, whose son John died with two other people in a 1991 explosion at the factory one awful morning.
I'd also like to express my gratitude to--and appreciation for--Sam's oldest son, Joe, and Joe's wife Linda, who have been great friends and know, all too well, the gain and loss, joy and sorrow, push and pull, of this singular family business.
This one is special.
