Twenty-eight men and women recall their experiences as the raw, newly born city of sandhills and gambling saloons matures into a metropolis of elegant homes and bustling factories. These voices from the past tell us of Life during the Civil War. Living under vigilante justice. Globe-trotting tourists on
visits to Barbary Coast dives and the opium dens of Chinatown.

This sequel to San Francisco Memoirs 1835-51 presents the recollections of almost thirty men and women who recall their personal experiences in the period 1852-99. From an early morning at the Cliff House, undertaken in times when roads were rough and sometimes treacherous, to the distance of the Civil War and its effects upon the city, this presents some historical eyewitness wonders to fascinate a wide audiences. Attention to memoirs which trace the city's culture, social nuances, and political involvements lend a wider historical importance to the work than might be attributed to a memoir collection in general. -- Midwest Book Review
