Product description

Synopsis
Sanibel, a barrier island on the southwest coast of Florida, was originally inhabited by the Calusa Indians around 1500. In 1513, explorer Ponce DeLeon landed ashore the exotic isle, with its brackish estuaries, plush mangrove jungles, and sandy beaches, opening the door for others who would eventually find their way to the island. Over time, Sanibel was visited by European explorers, slave traders, pirates, and Seminole Indians, all of whom added to its colorful and intriguing history. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, the original settlers of modern-day Sanibel arrived on the island. These pioneers were a contrasting group of individuals, comprised of diverse ethic origins and cultures, yet all seemed to share a common goal of using hard work, resourcefulness, and determination to make the island their home. Their efforts and sacrifices greatly contributed to the growth and rich history of Sanibel as we know it today.

Very Educating! Interesting History Lesson...

Created: 03/09/09
I loved the old pictures and descriptions, the stories of many. We Love the island. We take our family every other year and are going to visit this Dec. So now we have many more interesting things to go see and look for when we return this year. We always go to enjoy the beach and havent paid much attention to the history. So now with a new perspective I can't wait to tour the historic landmarks and buildings that are left. The island is an absolute wonder, we just love it, and this book was a wonderful lesson of it's history... Thank you so much. Highly Recommended.

I love this island, but this book is just photos of very early settlers lined up in front of old buildings. There are pretty long captions under each photo, but no real text or any interesting facts about the island. Lots of detail about who married who, etc. Not what I was looking for.
