Tales of Old Florida

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One hundred years ago, Florida was a wilderness of swamp and beach, dense forest and abundant wild game.  Undiscovered, except for a few pioneer sportsmen and hearty farmers and ranchers, the state was still a frontier. True, a few towns flourished on the fishing and the Caribbean trade, but it was generally a sleepy place, far removed from the later boom of the 1920s. 

Here is a collection of original articles and stories of the old Florida, of hunters and Indians, the development of the sportsman's paradise, the vast canvas of nature prior to the coming of the condominium. 

Illustrated with rare drawings, photographs and engravings, this book will recreate a paradise that can never be again.

Synopsis:

Illustrated with rare drawings, photographs and engravings, this book is a collection of original articles and stories of old Florida.

Synopsis:

When Florida was a wilderness, only the brave chanced the swamps, alligators, hurricanes and the lush, tropical forest - an amazing contrast to the vacation paradise of today.
