Touched by the Sun
The Florida Chronicles Vol 3

Stuart McIver Hardback $18.95 ISBN: 1-56164-206-1 Size: 6 x 9 272 Pages 76 b&w photos

Florida has long been a mecca for those looking for a change of scenery, pace, or fortune. One way or another, all who enter Florida are "touched by the sun." Its powerful rays leave them with a sense of well-being, better health, or maybe just a sunburn. Come meet some of the glorious sun-drenched characters.

In this third volume of the Florida Chronicles, a continuing series on the state’s history, author Stuart B. McIver tells his tales of Florida through the often tangled lives of people who could never be brushed aside as ordinary. These players in that great theatrical production called Florida include presidents, cowboys, gangsters, baseball players, writers, politicians, captains of industry, inventors, movie stars, and even a fire chief. See the other two volumes in this series. Murder in the Tropics and Dreamers, Schemers and Scalawags.

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."
