125 Davis, Jack E. and Kari Frederickson; Editors. Making Waves: Female Activists in Twentieth-Century Florida. Foreword by Gary R. Mormino and Raymond Arsenault.
Gainesville: University Press of Florida, (2003). First Edition. 
Octavo, blue cloth & white boards (hardcover), gilt letters, viii + 342 pp. Fine (As New) in a Fine (As New) dust jacket. From dust jacket: From Ruth Bryan Owen, Florida's first congresswoman, and Mary McLeod Bethune, founder of Bethune-Cookman College, to Betty Mae Tiger Jumper, the first chairwoman of the Seminole Tribe, and Marjoy Stoneman Douglas, champion of the Everglades, Making Waves examines the lives and works of women activists who made a significant impact on Florida in the last century. This collection enriches our understanding of the history of modern Florida and the role women played in it. To a degree greater than any other southern state in the twentieth century, Florida experienced dramatic economic, political, social, and environmental challenges, and Florida's women were in the forefront of the great social and political responses to those challenges. These thirteen essays describe the contributions made by women in urban renewal, civil liberties, civil rights, child welfare, labor unions, education, environmental protection, rural extension work, and women's liberation. By illuminating the involvement of the state's women in many of these fundamental issues, Making Waves provides a long overdue chapter in Florida's history. It will also contribute to the advancement of the study of women's history by examining women's activism in a variety of contexts and illustrating how this activism was often circumscribed by class and racial bias.

Featuring a collection of stunning images, this evocative new book harkens back to those enchanting days. As early as 1905, the city of St. Petersburg began creating postcards to attract not only tourists, but also business-minded individuals seeking an opportunity to take part in the area's growth. Depicting beloved beaches and other sources of natural beauty, as well as a number of local businesses, these surviving postcards offer a glimpse of the Sunshine City in a golden age that is often forgotten.
