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.

    Ft. Myers- Then and Now

    0 5/5 wookie - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fort Myers (Then and Now: Florida) (Paperback) I bought this for an 83 year old's birthday present. She has gone to Ft. Myers since she was a child and seemed totally thrilled with the book. She was familiar with a lot of the old shops and scenes. I understand this is a series and it turned out to be a thoughtful and clever gift. I definitely would buy another Then and Now book!!! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 12, 2012

    boring recipes I'm sure every family knows already

    0 3/5 Boribon - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Tropical Settings: A Collection of Recipes from the Junior League of Ft. Myers Florida (Hardcover) Very disappointing. There's absolutely nothing tropical about these recipes, they are just your regular, boring recipes I'm sure every family knows already. Kung pao chicken, London broil with mushroom sauce, Chicken Parmesan.... Why are these featured in a book about Florida cooking? There are much better cookbooks available, eg. Calypso Cafe, Tropic Cooking (this one is the best!), Miami Spice, Keys Cuisine.... 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 10, 2015

    Lovely overall view of Animal Communications

    0 5/5 Gayle P. Nastasi "gayze" (Middleburgh, NY United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Communicating With Animals : The Spiritual Connection Between People and Animals (Paperback) I found this book to be a wonderful 'introduction' resource for those who are curious about animal communication. It is particularly valuable for the skeptic, as it was written by a skeptic (or at least he started out that way). It looks at the skill of communicating telepathically with animals from an 'outside' viewpoint, allowing the reader to step back and consider with a critical yet unprejudiced eye just what they are seeing. I think this book will open skeptical minds at least to the overall idea that what they are looking at is possible, even if it does not convert them totally to the cause. A definite recommendation to all with an interest in the subject, and a fine 'first look' for those who wish to know more.Thumbs up.[Another good book for the beginner and those who are looking at the subject from an outside perspective is Patty Summers' book, "Talking With the Animals".] 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 20, 2001

    This is a MUST HAVE.

    0 5/5 Andrea (Ohio) - See all my reviews This review is from: Communicating With Animals : The Spiritual Connection Between People and Animals (Paperback) My curiosity with Animal Communication lead me to pick up Arthur Myer's book on communicating with animals. It is a must have for anyone interested, curious, and even skeptical on the whole subject. Myer has more or less written on his investigation with so-called communicators; their stories, their techniques, and has left it up to his reader's to believe or not to believe. This is the foundation for anyone opening their eyes to this world. Though it is not written to "teach" you animal communication, it certainly sheds light on the subject enough that will encourage you to desire to learn more. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 31, 2003

    disappointed in product

    0 4/5 pcefrk80 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: We never wore shoes: Growing up on Ft. Myers Beach, Florida (Hardcover) This was too be a birthday present for 75 yr old father. I was so excited to find it on Amazon. When I received the book it was in a lightly padded envelope that was badly shredded on all 4 corners. The upper right pages (30+) were water damaged. A little more thought into packaging such a heavy/large book would have been appreciated. When I contacted seller I asked for tracking number which they replied there was none. There was one on the envelope when it arrived. My father was thrilled to get this gift, but I was embarrassed since the description was "Collector/Nice" condition. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 30, 2013

    0 4/5 Penny Ploski - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: We never wore shoes: Growing up on Ft. Myers Beach, Florida (Hardcover) As a new owner on FMB (in 2010) i was looking for a historical book. This was before the Arcadia book was published. I was shocked by the styling of this book. It was"odd". But how much fun to read! I'd definitely recommend it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 18, 2013
