This collection of stories taken from contemporary journalism at the time of the earthquake is well worth a look. Another review mentions grammar and spelling problems, but there are none to speak of. The language and spelling is typical of the time. The stories are written with no hindsight, and therefor provide a compelling look at what was being said in the short time after the event. The final chapters are other materials on related disasters, not about San Francisco, as is typical even today in books rushed into print after an event.

Format: Hardcover
This book has first hand interviews, photos and descriptions of the tragic event that shook the world in April 1906.

Anyone who has any ties to San Francisco and California should

read this wonderful non-fiction story!

It has many facts and is relevant today because we see then how government reacted as we see it now. Not much has changed in our world.

Never thought about how the people dealt with this disaster. Didn't realize how much support from political to wealthy members of society the town of SF received.

I can't imagine going through this. Very well written book but it dwelled too long on other historical earthquakes. Still it's a good read.

This was a really great book because it concentrated on how the fire affected the every day people who lived through that horror and their optimistic spirits.
