Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's April 18, 1906, and a powerful earthquake has just rocked San Francisco. Photographer Edith Irvine and her assistant, Daisy Valentine, survive the tragedy. Armed with Edith's camera, the two women set out to document the devastation--even as buildings crumble around them and soldiers promise to shoot anyone trying to photograph the crippled city.

Based on the real-life experience of photographer Edith Irvine, this harrowing tale of bravery and survival includes many of Irvine's now-famous photographs.

Synopsis:

Photographer Edith Irvine and her assistant survive the great San Francisco earthquake of 1906 and risk their lives to document the devastation through photography.
