Annotation

A burgeoning new city, San Francisco, is built on the dreams of the American gold rush. But in 1906 the dreams of this city came crashing down beneath the wave of a horrifying earthquake that turned roads into great rippling rivers, that set buildings ablaze for days on end, and that made homes collapse upon themselves. Originally published: London: Viking, 2005
