THE LONGEST MINUTE The Great San Francisco Earthquake and Fire of 1906

by | Read by Traber Burns

History • 17.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Traber Burns presents Davenport's minute-by-minute account of San Francisco's 7.9 magnitude earthquake and the ensuing firestorm that lasted several days in 1906. The conflagration was due in part to greed, graft, and political policy relating to matters such as looting. Burns's anchorman style is at once gruff, workmanlike, and unemotional. The narration may well resemble how national and local radio announcers would have covered the disaster back in the day of the burgeoning broadcast radio industry. The author used a myriad of sources: resident letters, diaries, and previously unavailable archives. West Coast and other history buffs, who can transcend the somberness of the performance will learn much. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2023]
