About the Author:

Jack Nash is a retired musician, artist and writer living in central Florida. In 1972 he wrote his first book on the subject of indoor effects and pyrotechnics for the stage, which eventually helped in referencing wide scale use of indoor pyrotechnic and atmospheric effects, which is now big business. Like most kids growing up in the 50's, Jack has always been fascinated with fireworks and firecrackers. He started collecting firecrackers, labels and boxes at an early age, eventually finding himself to be an expert on the subject. Today, all commercial fireworks are made in China. What once was a huge industry in America is no more, and the glory days of the Great American Firecracker has become obscured by time. This book was written to preserve the history and tell the story of the way it was. The people, the products, the disasters and the good times from the days of the Great American Firecracker.
