About this book

Within a generation San Francisco grew from an isolated Mexican trading post with more hills than people into America's major Pacific Coast city.

Shaped by entrepreneurs, eccentrics, and visionaries, it became renowned for accommodating those who dared to be different. People as diverse as William Randolph Hearst, Lillie Coit, Carol Doda, Jerry Garcia, and Harvey Milk have thrived in San Francisco's permissive environment as it evolved into one of the world's most welcoming and visually stunning cities.
