Description

At 4.35am on Saturday 4 September 2010, Canterbury and its people were changed forever. The Press journalists look back at the earthquake and the days after, one of the region's most momentous weeks - and the miracle of survival that accompanied it. Highly illustrated, this book is a poignant record of the massive earthquake and its impact on Canterbury - both physical and emotional. It includes an outline of the quake and its aftershocks, lots of personal stories from locals, the science behind the quake and many excellent photographs taken by photographers from The Press. The emphasis is on the positive way the city and region coped with this disaster. The quake and its aftermath will be studied and analysed for years to come. For New Zealand it is a resounding wake-up call. For Cantabrians, whether they suffered damage or not, the earthquake of September 4 was a shattering experience never to be forgotten. Foreword by Bob Parker
