Description
Information
On the morning of April 18, 1906, the citizens of San Francisco woke to find their world literally crumbling, as an earthquake measuring 8.3 on the Richter scale turned their homes to rubble and ignited fires that nearly consumed what was left of the city. Up to 10,000 people - a figure unreported until now - died in the catastrophe.

Dan Kurzman presents a terrifying, page-turning glimpse into the surreal world of San Francisco during the disaster, told through the impeccably researched stories of its survivors. From the city's demolished tenements and charred mansions to the merciless and little-known military dictatorship installed in the midst of the chaos, this book brings to life this unparalleled event and its lingering effects.
