An hour before dawn on April 18, 1906, Phillip is awakened by the barking of dogs and the fearful whinnying of his father's horses. Moments later, San Francisco is struck by a tremendous earthquake. As walls buckle and bricks rain down on them Phillip's family struggles to escape from their own home. Then he remembers the horses. Can Phillip save them#151;and himself#151;in time?
Phillip wakes with an uneasy sense that something isn't right and within minutes his world turns topsy-turvy.
