In the wake of San Francisco's 1906 catastrophe, an enterprising publisher dispatched journalist Charles Morris to obtain firsthand narratives from survivors. Morris's gripping report was rushed to press a few weeks later, providing "a complete and accurate account of the fearful disaster which visited the great city and the Pacific coast, the reign of panic and lawlessness, the plight of 300,000 homeless people, and the worldwide rush to the rescue."
The first comprehensive account of the calamity, this historic chronicle traces the chain of events from the initial earthquake and fire to the rescue activities, recovery operations, and the colossal task of rebuilding. Packed with tales of narrow escapes, devastating losses, incredible feats of heroism, and heartwarming acts of generosity, the book is complemented by fifty-nine original full-page plates.
