Florida's Last Frontier
The History of Collier County by Charlton W. Tebeau

[Copeland Studies in History No.1]

The research for Charlton W.Tebeau's writing of the history of Collier County was first made possible in 1950 by a grant from the sons of Barron G. Collier, to underwrite publications in the history of southwestern Florida. Chapters about the community and the County at large were written from the memories of pioneers, and their sons and daughters, and along with photo collections from the "old days" drive home the reality of how swiftly Florida's Last Frontier was tamed for its resources unto the point of development.
