Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

San Francisco. Los Angeles. Tokyo. Anchorage. These four cities have all been walloped by major earthquakes. One city was hit back in 1906, another as recently as 1994. No matter when a big earthquake hits, it brings with it mass destruction. This engrossing Step 4 book shows us how earthquakes happen and how things changed in those cities forever. Includes fascinating historical photographs.

Synopsis:

Earthquakes are fascinating as well as terrifying. Some earthquakes barely shake the ground, while others are powerful enough to flatten a city in a matter of seconds. No one knows for sure when or where the next one will strike.<P>Read this book to find out what happened during some of the worst earthquakes in history.
