Highly recommended reading: FINDING FLORIDA / The True Story of the Sunshine State
by T. D. Allman

Over the centuries, Florida has been many things: an unconquered realm protected by geography, a wilderness that ruined Spanish conquistadors, ďgodís waiting room,Ē and a place to start over. Depopulated after the extermination of its original native population, today itís home to nineteen million. The site of vicious racial violence, including massacres, slavery, and the roll-back of Reconstruction, Florida is now one of our most diverse states, a dynamic multicultural place with an essential role in 21st-century America.
