Americas Great Disasters by Martin W. Sandler

For more than two centuries, Americans have proven themselves to be courageous and strong. These qualities are never more important than in the face of natures destructive forces or the dangers brought about by the innovations of the industrial revolution. The San Francisco earthquake, which reduced much of the city to rubble; the sinking of the steamship Sultana, the worst American maritime disaster of all time; and the Johnston flood, which washed away an entire town, are only a few of the calamities to have befallen this country. Through the use of photographs, engravings, and newspaper clippings that detail some of the worst disasters ever to confront this country, author Martin W. Sandler presents the American people at their best, standing firm in situations of great danger. In doing so, a fascinating picture emerges of a nations bravery, resilience, and humor -- traits that continue to characterize Americans today.
