Item description for Five Thousand Years on the Loxahatchee: A Pictorial History of Jupiter-Tequesta, Florida by James D. Snyder & Jim Johnston...

Overview
A generous, forgiving river in Florida brought "prosperity" to generations of Indians, farmers, traders and tourists in the form of clear waters, flocks of shorebirds, stately cypress, succulent oysters and a cornucopia of fresh fish. In this book are the words and over 250 pictures of the people who have lived in its watershed - from Jupiter Island to Juno Beach, from Jupiter Farms to Jupiter Inlet. It's also the story of the river itself: the struggle of a delicate waterway system to accommodate the crushing demand of those who want to share in its abundance.

Reviews - What do customers think about Five Thousand Years on the Loxahatchee: A Pictorial History of Jupiter-Tequesta, Florida?

Wonderful history! Entertaing and Informative.  Feb 25, 2004
I have always been interested in the history of South Florida and the Treasure Coast area in Florida.

I had an opportunity to look upon this book that was also signed by the author James (Jim) Snyder.

I know that I will be going out to buy this book not only for myself, but for friends and family that also live in this area.

There was so much information including pictures of the past that impacts today South Florida.

Having lived in this area since I was 10 (20 years), I see the change of this area in that amount of time.

This book is priceless.

 
Wonderful history of the area with amazing photos  Dec 19, 2003
My husband and I both truly enjoyed reading of the history of the area and seeing the many beautiful photographs. This is an excellent book and extremely well done in quality of content and presentation. It far exceeded our expectations! We have lived in Jupiter for many years, but do not know the author personally.
