Lasting little more than a minute, the earthquake wrecked 490 blocks toppled a total of 25,000 buildings, broke open gas mains, cut off electric power lines, and effectively destroyed the gold rush capital that had stood there for a half century.

This is the definitive account of the San Francisco earhquake and a fascinating exploration of a legendary event that changed the way we look at the planet on which we live. Z635
