Here's the tease
"San Francisco surged from hamlet to boomtown overnight--the most meteoric "instant city" in history. From the Gold Rush to the Tech Rush, it's been the site of daring innovations, counterculture upheavals and social rebellions that shaped generations. Over the decades, residents have offered unique perspectives through journals, letters and newspapers, their words bringing another time to life. Discover San Francisco through the eyes of miners and "ladies of the night." Relive the experiences of robber barons and beatniks who flourished in a tiny corner of the world with fewer than one million souls. With commentary, background and extraordinary images, historians Terry Hamburg and Richard Hansen guide you through these colorful quotes, showing the city as it once was and what it aspired to be.
