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.

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!

This should have been identified as San Francisco and other earthquake regions. Having lived in San Francisco and worked downtown in one of the buildings that withstood the 1906 earthquake and also lived on the Presidio made it for interesting reading.

This book is exactly what I was looking for. Based on the brief summary of the book in the advertisement it was close enough in description to what I wanted to research. I usually only buy reference type books preferring books about life in the United States in the late 19th century to the early 20th century. This is a hard to find item locally and the price on Amazon was much lower that other sources of this type of book.

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.

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.

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.

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.
