The Barbary Coast: An Informal History of the San Francisco Underworld - Asbury, Herbert

Asbury's classic chronicle explores the birth of San Francisco--a violent explosion from which the infant city emerged full-grown and raging wild. This is the story of the banditry, opium bouts, tong wars, and corruption, from the eureka at Sutter's Mill until the Great Fire.
