New book, 412 pages. This book follows the story of the city that was built on the dreams of the American gold rush, and was destroyed in less than a minute. Just before dawn on 18 April 1906 a massive earthquake roared through the city of San Francisco, tearing through the main thouroughfare of the town in huge, undulating waves as the entire surface of the earth and everything that stood upon it seemed to lift up and roll in from the ocean. Houses crashed to the ground, people were shaken from their beds, and within moments great fires burst into life across the city and raged for three days.
