Wildsam - San Francisco Field Guide
The western spirit lives large in San Francisco – big ideas, new identities, the magnetic pull that’s drawn gold rushers and tech boomers, John Muir and Harvey Milk. One wonders if there’s some mystic power at work, maybe a spell cast by clear air and open space. In many ways, SF is a global outpost for dreamers. It’s where Joe DiMaggio played high school ball, where Etta James found her voice, where hundreds of thousands have found new freedom and new opportunity. Writer Rebecca Solnit puts it best: San Francisco is where America comes to reinvent itself.
