    A great walking tour guidebook for anyone who likes history

    Dr. Kevin Starr, State Librarian of California, wrote of this book: 'Some guidebooks rise to the level of history. This is one of them. It is, in fact, not only useful as a visitors' guide; but like the best of the Baedekers, Historic Walks in San Francisco brings us to a new level of understanding of, and appreciation for, an endlessly fascinating city.'
