The Great Earthquake and Firestorms of 1906
- How San Francisco Nearly Destroyed Itself
- By: Philip L. Fradkin
- Narrated by: Arthur Morey
- Length: 15 hrs and 22 mins
The first indication of the prolonged terror that followed the 1906 earthquake occurred when a ship steaming off San Francisco's Golden Gate "seemed to jump clear out of the water." This gripping account of the earthquake, the devastating firestorms that followed, and the city's subsequent reconstruction vividly shows how, after the shaking stopped, humans, not the forces of nature, nearly destroyed San Francisco in a remarkable display of simple ineptitude and power politics.
