Discusses the history of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., from the 1890's through the 1990's.

Publisher: Arcadia Publishing

About this book
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.

This review is from: Fort Lauderdale: The Venice of America (FL) (Making of America) (Paperback) I bought this book as a gift which was very well received, however, there was already an inscription on the title page where it had been given as a gift before. That's what I get for buying a used version. But the book is outstanding. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 15, 2013

    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?)

    An easy guide to acclimate yourself to Fort Lauderdale

    0 4/5 Daniel Paul D'Aniello (Easton PA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Destination Fort Lauderdale (Kindle Edition) I usually turn to 'Destination' when I have little to no knowledge of a place I plan on visiting. I purchased the book and read it on my Kindle as I was flying down to Florida. It definitely helped orient myself to the town and what it had to offer. I ended up using a number of the recommendations made in the book. It was an easy guide to help a guy out! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 15, 2013

    THE MOST BEAUTIFUL JR. LEAGUE COOKBOOK TO DATE!

    0 5/5 Ana (Awaleri@aol.com) (Florida) - See all my reviews This review is from: Made in the Shade: A Collection of Recipes by the Junior League of Greater Ft. Lauderdale (Hardcover) I'm picky about my cookbooks. As I thumb through the pages I randomly stop 10 times and will only buy a cookbook if I would want to cook at least 5 of the 10 recipes I stopped on. Made in the Shade got a 9 out of 10!!! The recipes are easy but SO good. And there's a BONUS...there's a chapter with the "Best Of" recipes from the League's last cookbook...it's like getting 2 cookbooks in one. The full color pictures are beautiful and the quality of the book (especially the hard cover) surpasses that of any Jr. League cookbook I've ever seen. This is a keeper!! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 18, 1999

    Every Recipe Has Been Delicious!

    0 5/5 Jared's Mommy (Plantation, FL) - See all my reviews This review is from: Made in the Shade: A Collection of Recipes by the Junior League of Greater Ft. Lauderdale (Hardcover) I got this as a gift from a friend and was a bit skeptical as I'm not much of a Junior League type of gal. However, every recipe I've made has been wonderful. The Sausage Bread appetizer was a huge hit at a party and has been requested since. The Chocolate Bar cake is divine and not very hard for a homemade cake. Chocolate cream cheese frosting - yum! Recently, when pressed for time, I tried the Chocolate Kahlua cake that starts with cake mix. My friends were impressed! Very delicious!! I would definitely get this cookbook. It's a good mix easy and more effortful recipes. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 5, 2006

    0 2/5 Geepers Peepers "GeepersPeepers" (Lake Chapala, Mexico) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Made in the Shade: A Collection of Recipes by the Junior League of Greater Ft. Lauderdale (Hardcover) I collect Junior League cookbooks & rarely am I disappointed. This one is the exception. While it's a pretty book & well put together, the content leaves a lot to be desired. I'm not a fan of cake mix cakes or main dish recipes calling for cream of whatever soup & Velveeta cheese. There are several recipes I've seen in other books & nothing I'm just dying to try. I wish them luck in their next venture, though as I know the money goes to a good cause. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 8, 2001
