Nearly two of three Floridians are born somewhere else, and few appreciate the remarkable history of their state. Rick Baker provides an expert’s guide with a fast-paced, clearly written timeline filled with cultural and political nuggets. It’s a fascinating trip through time and through Florida, from Key West to Pensacola. We should hand this book to every new resident as they cross the state line.
