Richard Schwartz does to local history as Herb Caen did with his daily newspaper column......mines the gold sitting there under our noses.

Without him our sense of place would be prematurely defined.

I'm a Bay Area history buff so this book is awesome! It's not hardcore history but it's a good read and very interesting.
