Here is a taste of Florida history with a flavor for everyone. Meet the state's mobsters and visionaries, two-buck bettors and millionares, sportsmen and daredevils, warriors and storytellers, movie stars and binder boys. Sooner or later they all show up here, the dreamers, the schemers, and the scalawags who have made Florida a fascinating place to live and read about.

In this first volume of a continuing series on the state's history, McIver tells the Florida story through the lives and loves, the deeds and misdeeds of the colorful and often outrageous characters who called Florida home.

"McIver's book . . . is a welcome addition. McIver has a flowing writing style that is a pleasure to read."—The Orlando Sentinel

"Blending the best aspects of journalism and fireside story swapping, the book is nicely illustrated with photos and sketches of the principals, many reproduced from local museums and galleries."—Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel

Stuart B. McIver is an award-winning author of ten books on Florida, including Murder in the Tropics: The Florida Chronicles, Volume 2 and Hemingway's Key West. A former police reporter for the Baltimore Sun and currently editor of South Florida History Magazine, he has been called "South Florida's tribal storyteller."
