"It is hoped that the reader will find in this volume not only a comprehensive current history of our war with Spain for Cuba's freedom, but also much of the other matter that will be of interest and value in considering the future of the liberated island. Its history, its people, its resources and other salient subjects are included, with certain matter on Spain and her own affairs, with Puerto Rico and the Philippine islands, which chapters serve to make the volume a work for general reference and reading on the whole subject of the war." -- page 15.
The 1906 San Francisco earthquake was one of the destructive earthquakes ever recorded. Over 3,000 died; over 225,000 were left homeless; over 25,000 buildings were destroyed. The cost of loss was more than 400 million.
This is an anthology of three different accounts of the tragic events that followed. It contains the following works:
*The San Francisco Calamity by Earthquake by Charles Morris
*San Francisco During the Eventful Days of April, 1906 by James B. Stetson

The events of that day and what happened after is being adapted into a film directed by Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Mission Impossible 4, and The Iron Giant) and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures.
