Synopsis: On a Peaceful Spring Morning, Disaster Strikes San Francisco. On the early morning of April 19, 1906, the city of San Francisco was struck by a devastating earthquake that crumpled buildings, cracked water mains, broke gas pipes, and sent kerosene lamps flying. Fires quickly engulfed most of the city, leaving exhausted civilians to fight the flames with well water, sewer water, and old rags. Despite valiant rescue efforts, estimates place the death toll at around 3,000.

From School Library Journal: Grade 5-8–Using dramatic material culled from the adult recollections of four survivors–Hugh Kwong Liang (15), Doris Bepler (10), Sol Lesser (16), and DeWitt Baldwin (8)–Tanaka re-creates a series of events during and following the great San Francisco earthquake of April 18, 1906. Liberally laced with contemporary photos and some colorful artwork, the book also contains fact boxes on earthquakes, fire horses, and Chinatown, and includes a city map marked with sites mentioned in the text. Less detailed than Lisa Chippendale's The San Francisco Earthquake of 1906 (Chelsea, 2000) and James House's The San Francisco Earthquake (Lucent, 1989; o.p.), this book still deserves consideration because of its youthful views of a national catastrophe. Readable, personal.–Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
