From the jacket: "This is the story of the writing which came out of San Francisco and its closely related outposts, such as Virginia City, Nevada, from the Gold Rush in 1849 to the coming of the railroad in 1869....The pattern of the book is primarily biographical, built on the histories of eight central figures: Bret Harte, Mark Twain, Prentice Mulford, Ina Coolbrith, Charles Warren Stoddard, Joaquin Miller, Henry George, and Ambrose Bierce."
