I Survived the San Francisco Earthquake, 1906!

OK, I didn't actually survive it since I wasn't even born yet when the devastating earthquake demolished the city of San Francisco, California on April 18, 1906. But this book by Lauren Tarshis will make you feel like you are right there as the buildings crumble and catch fire all around on that fateful day.

Read a sneak peek of the book to see what it was really like to survive one of the worst natural disasters in the history of the United States.


 Also, check out the other books in the I Survived series to read what it was like to live through the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Hurricane Katrina, epic New Jersey shark attacks, and the sinking of the Titanic.
