Cape St. George Lighthouse and Apalachicola Bay by James L. Hargrove,Carol A. Talley Pdf
The beacon of the historic Cape St. George Lighthouse still guides mariners into Apalachicola Bay. Founded in 1831, the town of Apalachicola took its name from Creek Indians, to whom it signified a land of friendly people. Sheltered from the Gulf of Mexico by a string of barrier islands, the port flourished as the only site in Florida on a river that is navigable for over 300 miles to the fall line at Columbus, Georgia, Apalachicola's sister city. Generations of lighthouse keepers were bound to St. George Island and its great bay by an intense sense of duty to sustain seagoing commerce and a love for a place where they could raise their families in freedom. When the foundation washed away in 2005 after a very active hurricane season and a final surge from Hurricane Wilma, residents took action to salvage and rebuild the historic lighthouse. Visitors may still climb the lighthouse tower, surrounded by bricks that were first laid in 1852.

Most towns have their secrets. In the 1930s, Port St. Joe has more than its share. Old Doc Berber, Port St. Joe's only general practitioner, thought he knew all the secrets of the sleepy town in Florida's panhandle. But a grisly murder out at the Cape San Blas Lighthouse drags him into a series of intrigues that even he can't diagnose. Fortunately, the wise old doctor has an even wiser housekeeper, the industrious Jewel Jackson, who has a magic touch in the kitchen and an old Southern saying for every situation—and has tabs on everything that's going on in town through the furtive black-folks' grapevine. But the old doctor loses his good sense when he meets young Sally Martin, the dead man's widow. In spite of himself, Doc Berber is drawn into a dangerous search for the killer that leads him into a sinister tangle of deceit, corruption, and scandalous secrets. He's forced into an agonizing struggle, not just with the murderer, but with his own conscience as well. Next in series > > See all of the books in this series

Searching for the Dixie Barbecue by Wilber W. Caldwell Pdf
Searching for the Dixie Barbecue, with its thought-provoking text and many black and white photos, is a culinary and cultural saga. Here are glimpses of a fragment of society still tenaciously clinging to deep-rooted, primal instincts; to legends of the American frontier; and to the hand-me-down, rural traditions of the Deep South. This is a story about (among other things) regional pride, homespun cookery, backwoods lore, self-effacing redneck humor, shameless braggadocio, macho self-imagery, carnivorous bravado, porcine fundamentalism, boldfaced lies, and both culinary and social intransigence. This book will supply you with the elusive answers to three questions: What is real barbecue? How do you find it? and What does it mean to be Southern?
Just south of Miami Beach lies the southernmost sand barrier island of the continental United States—Key Biscayne. Long the symbol of an idyllic, barefoot, island lifestyle, this swirl of sand, 5 miles long by 1 1/2 miles wide, is the subject of this lucid history, which begins 4,000 years ago and continues through its discovery by Ponce de Leon, its use as a military and lighthouse reservation, the Seminole Wars, shipwreck salvaging, and its present function as public parkland and residential and high-rise condominium village. On Cape Florida, Key Biscayne's southern end, the Cape Florida Lighthouse, newly restored, stands watch as it has for over 170 years. Drawing from original documents, including many letters and pictures saved by descendants of settlers and lighthouse keepers, Key Biscayne offers a vivid portrait of this compelling Florida island.
