The Earth Shook, The Sky Burned has mesmerized San Francisco tourists and residents for decades. Illustrated with more than four hundred on-the-scene photographs, this definitive volume tells the dramatic story of the four days of upheaval and destruction that swept the city when a violent earth tremor rocked the land, succeeded rapidly by a devastating fire that destroyed nearly thirty thousand buildings and left over a quarter million people homeless. Now reissued with a powerful new cover, The Earth Shook, The Sky Burned is a San Francisco classic, revealing what really happened that April morning almost a century ago, when the face of the city was changed forever.
