I picked up my dvd at a shop at Fisherman's Warf in San Francisco and I must have re-watched this DVD a dozen times! because it is so well made and intersting to watch.

I think they did a wonderful job on this documentary and I would highly recommend it, especially if your a history buff like myself.

definitely worth adding to your dvd collection

Im also planning on picking up another documentary about the SF earthquake and fire of 1906 called: "Disaster by the Bay the great SF earthquake and fire of 1906" I heard that was alos a very good one.

I'm writing a novel based during the Great Quake, and this DVD just gave me so much information and inspiration. I'm so glad I bought it. I'm sure to be watching it often as I progress with the book.

The DVD did a wonderful job covering the scope and scale of the Great Earthquake and the impact on San Francisco and the country during that era.

I teach disaster management at Delaware Technical & Community College and use this video in a course on the evolution of emergency management in the United States. There is no way for students to understand the impact of disasters without videos like this. I highly recommend it for educational purposes.

San Francisco is one of my favorite cities and to see how the earthquake changed (or didn't change, in some respects) this classic town was eyeand mind opening.
