"Did you know that a famous grizzly bear once lived in Golden Gate Park? Or that in 1921, 25 bison escaped their enclosure at night and roamed the streets of the nearby Richmond district? You couldn't make this stuff up. Written by a GGMG mom of two, this A to Z book will make your family look at GGP with new eyes and will probably inspire you to explore new spots. Fairy doors, anyone."--Golden Gate Mothers Group magazine
