The book is a treasure trove of original stories and nascent legends. These stories are the culmination of over four dozen personal interviews with influential leaders of South Beach. When added to the original artwork and the stunning photography of Joe Davis, the book is a masterful addition to the existing literature of Florida history, lavishly illustrated with 150 full color images including 4 double page gate folds.
