Description

A TREASURE WE CALL HOME Florida. The sandcastles of its history wash away as quickly as tides roll in, as everyone races onward toward the future. But even in a culture of ceaseless change, glittering treasures of yesterday remain. You have to look to find them. Rick Crary has spent years of digging through rare books and buried historical records searching for Florida's forgotten past. And now, he takes us on a treasure hunt through time to uncover enduring significance in the vanishing history of Florida and its hidden Treasure Coast. Crary employs his skills as a tireless researcher and master story-teller to disclose the dreams and destinies of people whose lives have been linked forever with Florida's Treasure Coast, including: an embattled President; a washed-up movie mogul; a judge who murdered a judge; a newsman sage; a Pineapple King---and Florida's Great Gatsby Governor. A TREASURE WE CALL HOME is more than a book about finding history, it's a book about finding life.show more
