About this book
Located on the wide and beautiful Caloosahatchee River, just fifteen miles from the Gulf of Mexico, Fort Myers, the fabled "City of Palms," is known throughout the world for its tropical weather and many local attractions. Exotic flowers and shrubbery dot the city landscape, which today includes a revitalized downtown, inviting neighborhoods, endless shopping, and a breathtaking waterfront. Like many Florida communities, the origin of Fort Myers can be traced to the Seminole Indian wars of the 1800s. The fort itself-named for Lt. Col. Abraham Myers-was established in the frontier region to quell uprisings and help in the Indian Removal campaigns. It was later used by Union forces during the Civil War, was abandoned, and then reoccupied by courageous settlers who relied on the cattle business, and citrus and vegetable farming to sustain their families and their new town. As the years passed, Fort Myers grew and began to attract winter visitors, including such famous Americans as Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, both of whom had homes in the area, as well as wealthy sportsmen eager to try their luck at tarpon fishing in nearby Gulf waters. When the railroad finally reached Fort Myers, tourists, transplants, retirees, and many more would discover the irresistible charms of one of Florida's newest gems.

About this book
Fort Myers lies on the beautiful, wide Caloosahatchee River. Tropical flowers and palm trees dot the landscape, which today boasts a revitalized downtown, historic neighborhoods, shopping, and a breathtaking waterfront. The fort itself, named for Lt. Col. Abraham Myers, was established to quell uprisings and help the Indian Removal campaigns. It was later used by Union forces in the Civil War, abandoned, and then reoccupied by courageous settlers who relied on the cattle business and farming to sustain families and the community. In the late 1800s, Fort Myers began to attract famous winter residents, such as "electrician" Thomas Edison, as well as wealthy sportsmen trying their luck at tarpon fishing. When the "iron horse" finally arrived in 1904, Fort Myers experienced an economic transformation, and her days as a frontier cow town were numbered.

    Well written and informative

    0 4/5 Mark P - See all my reviews This review is from: Discover the beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel (Kindle Edition) I picked this up at the Fort Myers Airport and during my vacation it became my go-to resource while I was on the road. It was well written and funny. It's rare that travel guides are both entertaining and informative. It could be organized by location rather than by type of activity, but still helpful. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 10, 2012

    There is a pattern on how to do life - the diamond life

    Is life totally random or is there a design (anywhere?)? What is life all about any way? Why are we here? Does any of this really matter? How do we find our way when everything seems to be cratering all around?Could there really be a pattern on how to do life that makes sense? Yes there is and "Home Run" lays out such a pattern!What is success in life? And isn't success better when there is someone to share it with? And let's look in the mirror. Can we hold our head up high with self-respect? Is our success significant?Success -> Someone -> Self-Respect -> SignificanceKevin Myers and John Maxwell reveal both a remarkable and simple pattern, using the analogy of baseball, to lay out what we should and could be doing with the only life we have...the one we are living today. Tomorrow is not promised to any of us.If you are tired of living a random life; if you are tired of wondering where you are and what you should even do... 5/5 Skip Freeman (Atlanta, GA) - See all my reviews, February 4, 2014

    Home Run - A Leadership Guide That Hits It Out Of The Park

    Being a Christian is supposed to be all about abundant life - a life overflowing with joy and peace, right?So why is it so many Christians find themselves banging their heads off the wall wondering when things are going to turn around. Wondering when that life of abundance is going to kick in. Are they not sincere enough, dedicated enough?Pastor Kevin Myers was both dedicated to God and sincere in his faith, but yet he found himself knee deep in self-doubt and frustrated faith after trying to plant a church in Georgia. He was ready throw in the towel. He was burned out and low on hope.But according to Myers, during this time of trial, God was revealing to him a pattern of living that would turn his life and ministry around.Home Run: Learn God's Game Plan For Life and Leadership, co-written by Kevin Myers and John C. Maxwell, shares that revelation in a way most Americans can relate to - through the game of baseball.Does a trot... 5/5 Kathleen Edwards (Pittsburgh, Pa.) - See all my reviews, February 4, 2014
