A Crack in the Edge of the World: America and the Great California Earthquake of 1906 by Simon Winch

Through no weakness on the author or publisher, it arrived not long after Hurricane Katrina wiped out New Orleans, another American city at the opposite end of the country and century.

Krakota: The Day the World Exploded: August 27, 1883 by Simon Winchester

It seems oddly appropriate that Winchester ends his book with a personal journey, for this is a work of deep personal significance to him. It is also a book of tremendous importance to our understanding of the place of humans in the natural landscape.
