Description

Florida has the longest recorded history of any state, dating back to the journeys of Spanish conquistadores in the early sixteenth century. From the voyages of Ponce de Leon to the dawn of the Space Age, Florida has played an important role in the history of the United States. This concise history shows Florida's evolution from European colony to American state and jewel of the Sunbelt. It chronicles the struggles between the United States and Spain, the trauma of the Civil War, and the great booms of development in the twentieth century, as well as how Floridians have grappled with the problems of over development in the 'Sunshine State'. Over 50 illustrations, photographs, and maps enrich this text, which is perfect for the vacationer, the student, and all curious readers.
