From the union of the Chattahoochee and Flint Rivers at the Georgia-Florida state line, the mighty Apalachicola River flows unimpeded for about 100 miles to the Gulf of Mexico. At the rivers mouth lies Apalachicola Bay and Florida’s “Forgotten Coast,” known for world-class seafood and seemingly endless miles of pristine beaches, shallow estuaries, and protected forests.
In Apalachicola Bay, author Kevin McCarthy takes us through the history of the bays sites and communities. With vibrant color paintings by William Trotter, Apalachicola Bay will let you savor some authentic Florida history and see what makes this “Forgotten Coast” memorable for residents and visitors alike.
