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.
