Buildings were weaving in and out. The street pitched like a stormy sea. Bricks were raining down all around him. The ground shook with such violence that Jacob thought the world had come to an end.

In award-winning author Gail Langer Karwoski's stirring fictional account of the San Francisco Earthquake of 1906, young readers will relive the drama of the actual event and its devastating aftermath through the courageous survival of a young boy. An Author's Note at the end carefully separates fact from fiction, giving a glimpse into one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history.
