74 Brookfield, Charles M. and Oliver Griswold. They All Called it Tropical: True Tales of the Romantic Everglades National Park, Cape Sable, and the Florida Keys. With a Foreword by Daniel B. Beard, First Superintendent, The Everglades National Park and An Introduction by John D. Pennekamp, Associate Editor, The Miami Herald. With 23 Illustrations and a Map.
Miami, FL: The Data Press, (1964). 
Octavo, paperbound (stiff, b&w photo. illus. wrappers), 78 pp. Very Good+, with lightly rubbed edges. Everglades National Park is often described as a unique biological area featuring colorful wildlife and unusual plants. Until now, the human history of the park and its environs has been almost totally neglected. Perhaps this avoidance has stemmed from the fact that history's pages are not splashed with stories of great battles or famous civilizations which rose and fell in the brooding vastness of the Everglades. Its history is one of its people -- individuals or small groups -- who have dared to face one of the strangest environments in the New World. By dugout canoe, stately galleon, sparkling little sharpie sailboat, modern cabin cruiser, or wading on foot, they have come and gone. Some of their tracks shall forever be hidden in the timeless Everglades...

76 Brothers, Betty. Florida Keys: Triggerfish. Illustrated by Netannis Kline.
Wake-Brook House, (1965). First Edition. 
Octavo, blue cloth (hardcover), paper spine label, map illus. endpapers, 154 pp. A bookworm has nibbled its way through the entire volume, and as a consequence, a tiny hole extends from the front cover, all the way through the lower cover; otherwise, the volume is in Very Good+ condition, with light foxing (age darkened spotting); in a Fair, mylar protected dust jacket, with edgewear that includes light chipping. From dust jacket: ...This second book is filled with the lore of the Florida Keys, but in this collection of short stories, the author has concerned herself primarily with the people who inhabit the Keys...Artists, fishermen, ministers and fanatics, carpenters, seamstresses, real estate salesmen and drag-line operators, play-boys and girls, the old and the sick, nature lovers and lotus eaters. They are all here in Triggerfish, but so too are the solid citizens who have inhabited the Keys for generations, with their inependence, integrity and self-reliance, no matter what their origins -- Spanish, Bahamian, Cuban, Negro, or Yankee-come-lately. It is a lusty, non-conformist group of which Betty Brothers writes, and one which she knows well. A sampling of titles shows the scop; The Woman Who Would Not Die, the King of Bahia Honda, The Divers, Vigil at Poinciana Key, and, of course, the powerful and terrifying title story...Triggerfish is interesting reading for all who claim the Keys for home, naturally, but it does not stop there. It is prime entertainment for all those who have discovered the Keys or hope to do so...

78 Brown, Canter, Jr. None Can Have Richer Memories: Polk County, Florida, 1940-2000.
Tampa, FL: University of Tampa Press, Polk County Historical Association, (2005). First Edition. 
Octavo, green cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, xiv + 368 pp. Notes and highlighting; otherwise, very attractive in a Near-Fine dust jacket. From dust jacket: Polk County, the heart of Florida, resonates with the richness, diversity, and relevance of its historical experience. Having influenced regional and state development for nearly a century and a half, it has produced untold numbers of individuals and witnessed a myriad of events that have stirred waves of profound significance. These, in turn, have rippled outward far beyond the county's physical limits. Imperial Polk, as it is known to many, now has entered a twenty-first century that promises to present challenges of enormous growth and fundamental transformation. As reflected in this volume, though, the Polk County Historical Association and acclaimed historian Canter Brown, Jr., have acted ensure that its future direction can be guided by insights and understandings gleaned directly from a meaningful past. Along the way, readers will discover a fascinating world, one that sprang from trials of the Great Depression and World War Two to dizzying heights of economic prosperity and cutting edge development before staggering from blows of nature and of man. They will follow in the footsteps of famed governors and United States senators; distinguished jurists; determined civil rights leaders; women who pioneered roles in commerce and pubic life; heroes and heroines who served their country with valor; innovative business executives; more than a few thieves, crooks, and scoundrels; and a whole county full of characters and just plain folks. What you will find here is not a typical local history. Revel instead in living, breathing history penned by an award-winning writer who delights in the story of his native place but sees its blemishes, conradictions, and shortcomings to be every bit as interesting as its picture perfect beauty..

79 Brown, Canter, Jr. Tampa in Civil War and Reconstruction. [Tampa Bay History Center Reference Library Series No. 10].
Tampa, Florida: University of Tampa Press, 2000. First Edition. 
Octavo, green cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, x + 246 pp. Fine (As New) in a Fine (As New) dust jacket. From dust jacket: It was a time when the United States exploded in war and its people battled for the nation's soul after peace finally arrived; yet, up until now no one has lifted for Tampans the heavy curtain that has barred them from the sight of their own dynamic Civil War and Reconstruction past. Instead of the mostly tranquil scenes of early Tampa previously depicted as the remote Gulf village of the 1860s and 1870s, historian Canter Brown, Jr., here reveals a place and time teeming with conflict, danger, treachery, privations, and disasters -- natural and man-made. But, that is not all. The book sensitively explores the quiet -- and sometimes not so quiet -- heroism of men and women, black and white, who held their community together and who doggedly persisted in the belief that a better day would come. Brown's narrative style draws the reader into the lives and experiences of historical characters and pursues the twists and turns that often reveal seemingly clear actions and motivations to be something else entirely. one remarkable passage typifies many others as it explores how a lionized Confederate heor's heralded defiance of Union authority actually constituted a blunder that almost resulted in Tampa's complete destruction. Based on superb research into previously neglected primary sources, Tampa in Civil War and Reconstruction offers a compelling and complex view of the period's impact upon a tiny civilian outpost that would grow to be one of Florida'as -- and the nation's -- great cities. This is a history that resonates with insight and humanity. This is a story that you will want to read and to share.
