Taking its name from a fortification established more than 160 years ago during the Second Seminole War, Fort Lauderdale boasts a history stretching back 5,000 years before the first white settlers arrived in the eighteenth century. From beautiful tales of the "mysterious" New River that helped launch the community to more recent stories of rum running and gambling, segregation and integration, and boom and bust, the history of this Florida city is told here through the everyday lives of those who lived it.

Fort Lauderdale, The Journal of Florida Artist Rupert W. Miles

Creator: Man Morrow, Rupert W. Miles | 2006-12-31

A "must read" for art historians.

Publisher: Man Morrow

About this book
A "must read" for art historians. Clear testament to the strange paradox that genius need not necessarily be inhibited by madness. It is believed that the same hurricane that killed the five hundred men on the Flagler System oversea railroad project in 1926 also killed as many as two thousand migrant farm workers, can cutters, in the sugarcane fields of South Florida. All the mother fucking rain had caused a hellish flood that submerged the entire region during the night. The identities and exact number of victims from the flood were never known because many of them were foreign, Haitians and Dominicans mostly, and they were all dirt poor. Around here at least, if you're dirt poor, nobody gives a fuck what happens to you, especially during the night. (p. 159)

    Useful book for the Florida Keys

    My husband and I like to have travel guide book with us when we go on vacation. We’ve taken both Frommers and Fodors in the past, but we decided on Fodors for our Miami/Florida Keys trip since it looked like it had more information on the Keys, where we would be spending most of our trip, while the Frommers looked like it was mostly Miami. We were not disappointed! There were sections for each group of keys - upper, middle and lower - and there were great recommendations for accommodations and places to eat in each section. We were staying pretty laid back on this trip, so we weren’t looking for tons of things to do, but this book had a enough information about each of the islands we stayed on to give us interesting ideas of what to do. There was also information about visiting the Everglades, which we decided to do on our way from Miami to the keys.There was a pull out map, which we didn’t end up using. It was a nice feature nonetheless. One... 4/5 JBo (Waco, TX) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Good Basic Review Guide

    This guidebook is a good place for an out-of-towner to see some of the highlights of Broward County. We have frequented Greater Ft Lauderdale 5 or 6 times a year for the past 3-4 years and have found a lot of the spots the authors pick as good choices for families, couples and singles. They offer a good overall perspective on the area. We particularly thought the review of the real estate market was spot on. Of course there are some true favorites for us that are not listed, and some choices the authors pick that we are not impressed with... but that I think is the norm for any guidebook.We bought the ebook Kindle version of this book - a little difficult to navigate, but gets the job done. The one "misleading" feature of the book is that the cover gives the impression that it would contain more content for gay travelers (The cover picture is of the entrance to Sebastian Beach - THE gay epicenter of the beach scene in Ft.Lauderdale - and there is a rainbow banner on... 4/5 Greater Ft Lauderdale Frequent Visitor - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
