This Is Chance!: The Shaking of an All-American City, A Voice That Held It Together
This Is Chance!: The Shaking of an All-American City, A Voice That Held It Together. Mooallem tells the story of the Great Alaskan Earthquake of 1964, much of it from the perspective of Genie Chance, a radio broadcaster who found herself able to help others by staying on the radio in Anchorage and keeping people informed and helping point people in the direction of helping one another. This is a great character study of Genie Chance, of the can-do attitude of newcomers in Anchorage, and the human goodness of people who just step up to do what needs to be done.
