Description

A solid seller for over a decade, this dramatic account of San Francisco's 1906 earthquake and fire is updated with a contemporary cover. Over 400 on-the-scene photos provide a blow-by-blow account of the violent tremor and the three-day fire that followed, in which nearly 30,000 structures were destroyed and over a quarter million people left homeless."A fascinating book, and the pictures are magnificent." -Chicago Sunday Tribune
