Gerald and Marc Hoberman have walked the streets and hills of San Francisco and taken to the air to seek out the vistas of a mystical urban kingdom bounded by bay and ocean, set apart by its vision and unique frame of mind. Their photographs of San Francisco's Golden Gate and Bay Bridges span the gulf between the myth and the reality of a city which was founded by Spaniards, put on the world map by a Gold Rush, shaken and burned by a mighty earthquake and conflagration, then built anew from the ashes. With precision, the Hobermans lenses encompass the skyscrapers of the Wall Street of the West and America's capitol of innovation.

San Francisco writers Maxine Cass and Fred Gebhart contributed their unique perspective with original text for each striking photograph. "San Francisco, the book and the city, can be savored time and time again by those who yearn to leave their hearts in San Francisco.
