Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The city's miraculous emergence from the devastating earthquake of 1906 unveils the fascinating people, history, and culture that have made the past 100 years in San Francisco an extraordinary American adventure.

It's fitting that San Francisco's city seal features a phoenix; the city itself was reborn from the ashes of the Great Earthquake of 1906. Documenting 100 years since that spectacular rebirth, this lushly illustrated history reveals the soul of San Francisco. From the majesty of the Golden Gate Bridge to the back alleys of Chinatown, exclusive Nob Hill to the gritty sentinel of Alcatraz, the happenings, larger-than-life personalities and watershed events in the City by the Bay come bursting to life. Written and photographed by people who know it best, the book traces San Francisco's era of Flower Power, the music and sexual revolutions of the 1960s, Gay Liberation, and the city's emergence as a world-class center of social and technological innovation.
