The Big One

July 14th, 2021

People in the Pacific Northwest have been warned about The Big One, a massive earthquake followed by a tsunami, which will cause billions of dollars in damages and many deaths. On Borrowed Time: North America’s Next Big Quake (Goose Lane $22.95) is Gregor Craigie’s deep dive into the science behind earthquakes. In addition to interviewing scientific experts, he has collected first-hand accounts from people who have survived deadly quakes — all in an effort to find out what we can do to prepare now for this major natural disaster that is coming – it’s only a matter of time. Craigie is the host of CBC Radio’s On the Island in Victoria. He has also reported for CBS Radio and been a former BBC journalist who read the news to millions of American listeners of The World on Public Radio International. 978177310206
