During the 1800's, as more and more people were settling throughout the nation, American Indians were forced to leave their homelands and relocate to Indian territory, later becoming Oklahoma. Approximately 16,000 Cherokee Indians traveled nearly 1000 miles, mostly by foot and under the worst of conditions. Thousands perished during the journey which later became known as the Trail of Tears. Join the Raiders as they witness another historical, yet sad time in America's past.

You can't miss the red tower when at Jupiter (Florida) Inlet. But many passers-by do miss the fact that the lighthouse is the beacon that showed early settlers the way to southeast Florida.

Just as the hilly confluence of two rivers was a trading and ceremonial center during 5,000 years of Indian life, the large dune drew a succession of Spanish, English, Seminole Indians and American soldiers. When the lighthouse was built there in 1860, it became the hub for hunters, surveyors, Civil War blockade runners, Union gunboats and pioneer farmers.

In A Light in the Wilderness, with 75 rare photos, maps and letters, author James D. Snyder tells how today's coastal strip of nearly 7 million residents began just a few generations ago when bears, panthers and alligators roamed and ruled.
