by Samuel Proctor
From reviews of the first edition:
"The impact of [Broward's] career upon the Florida political scene is told by Samuel Proctor with a skill that combines suspense and accuracy. . . . A great contribution in the field of Florida history."--Miami Daily News
"The first full-dress biography of [a] colorful Florida politician. . . . His name is perpetuated in the county created at the height of the drainage boom for which he was chiefly responsible. But to many Floridians the name of Broward means a daring filibusterer who smuggled guns and guerrillas to Cuba's revolutionaries. That melodramatic chapter of Broward's life is not overlooked by biographer Proctor."-- Miami Herald
Now in a new paperback edition, Samuel Proctor's popular biography was first described as "a lusty narrative of a lusty age." Revealing the politics and intrigues of frontier Florida in the period still known as the "Broward Era," Proctor describes the life and liberal administration of Napoleon Bonaparte Broward (1857-1910), elected governor of Florida in 1904.
