San Francisco

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=96307480&fc=GB&cjsku=96307480...
A local rock star once said, âSan Francisco is forty-nine square miles surrounded by reality.â No American city has such a broad sweep of staggering viewsâof the ocean, of a huge bay, of surrounding hillsâor such a high opinion of its own worth. San Francisco has always been rich, too; the cityâs great wealth has long underwritten the broadmindedness so vital to its charm. But there is much more to the City by the Bay than money and rarefied air, and, in San Francisco, Michael Johns intimately portrays the history and surprisingly complex sensibilities that give this small city its outsized personality. Johns explores how, despite its sophistication, San Francisco retains a frontier quality that has always attracted seekersâof fortune, power, pleasure, refuge, rebellion. Yet the city is more than irreverent, independent, and a bit outside the law: itâs also historically progressive, technologically innovative, and open to all kinds of people and ideas. As Johns shows us, San Francisco is an easy place to be differentâa home to the Beats and the hippies, a vibrant LGBT community and left-wing politics, the rise of Burning Man, and the creation of technologies that make todayâs San Francisco the City of Apps. From Haight-Ashbury to the Tenderloin, Chinatown to the Mission, Johnsâs urban journey blends historical narrative, personal reflections on the city today, and a treasure trove of images for a true San Francisco treat.

The San Francisco Earthquake

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1736382&fc=US&cjsku=1736382...
A “gripping, can’t-put-it-down” chronicle, drawing on eyewitness reports and historical documents, by the New York Times–bestselling authors of Enola Gay (Los Angeles Herald Examiner). It happened at 5:13 a.m. on April 18, 1906, in San Francisco. To this day, it remains one of the worst natural disasters in American history—and this definitive book brings the full story to vivid life. Using previously unpublished documents from insurance companies, the military, and the Red Cross, as well as the stories of those who were there, The San Francisco Earthquake exposes villains and heroes; shows how the political powers tried to conceal the amount of damage caused by the earthquake; reveals how efforts to contain the fire actually spread it instead; and tells how the military executed people without trial. It also features personal stories of people who experienced it firsthand, including the great Italian tenor Enrico Caruso, the banker Amadeo Giannini, the writer-adventurer Jack London, the temperamental star John Barrymore, and the thousands of less famous in their struggle for survival. From the authors of The Day the Bubble Burst, The San Francisco Earthquake is an important look at how the city has handled catastrophe in the past—and how it may handle it in the future.
