Since the California Gold Rush, they have shared a bond begun by the fellowship of their patriarchs, Finney McCurren and Lucas Pritchard.The story tells of the McCurren and Pritchard actions and impressions of their ravaged world during a twenty-four hour period centered upon the 1906 earthquake. There is fire, peril, and missing family and friends, a train depot explosion and a hurried trek to San Francisco on stolen horseback.I was hungry for authentic detail and poured over as many resources as I could find, attempting to make The City That Waits To Die richer, to make it real.

In addition to residing in San Francisco for ten years and still visiting regularly, I spent two years researching the 1906 details of San Francisco. I am still amazed at how the landmarks and street names have changed in one hundred years, because of the quake’s destruction, and in response to a constantly growing population and civic economy bound on three sides by water.Access to one-of-a-kind, non-digital, historical geological reference materials in Pasadena via The California Institute of Technology’s library greatly assisted in my 1906 quake research. I even pieced the names of each 1906 character and family together from the lists of those who unfortunately died in the 1906 earthquake.
