From the Book Passage calendar:

Rand Richards talks about Mud, Blood & Gold: San Francisco in 1849. Richards vividly brings to life what S.F. was like during the landmark year of 1849. Based on eyewitness accounts and previously overlooked official records, Richards chronicles the explosive growth of a wide-open town rife with violence, gambling, and prostitution, all of it fueled by unbridled greed.
