Item description for A Light In The Wilderness: The Story of Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and the Southeast Florida Frontier by James D Snyder...

Overview
Although nearly 7 million people live along the southeast Florida coast, scarcely three generations ago it was a wild, lawless frontier ruled by bears, snakes and alligators. But when a lighthouse was built at Jupiter Inlet in 1860, it became the hub for hunters, surveyors, Civil War blockade runners, Union gunboats and pioneer farmers. A Light in the Wilderness, with over seventy rare photos, maps and letters, tells how southeast Florida survived the catharsis of the Civil War, how the lighthouse at Jupiter drew the first families into its orbit, and how it became a key link in the steamboat-railroad path that led people to the "Garden of Eden."

Reviews - What do customers think about A Light In The Wilderness: The Story of Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and the Southeast Florida Frontier?

Snyder's Latest Work Is a Tour de Force for Florida History Lovers  Nov 2, 2006
James Snyder's A Light in the Wilderness is a brilliantly written, extraordinarily well-researched Florida history classic. Easy to read and full of a number of fascinating vintage photos, the reader is taken on a magical mystery tour of sorts involving a colorful cast of characters including everything from Caribbean pirates and Seminole warriors to Civil War blockade runners. Snyder's dry sense of humor adds wit to an already spirited and exciting story. This book is a must for Florida history lovers.
