Book: Hidden History of Florida

Florida has a history as diverse as its residents. And much of that is still hidden. Since the arrival of the Spanish in 1513, the state has played host to strange stories. A heartbroken senator entered a mental institution over unrequited love for an heiress. Thousands of British pilots trained in flight schools across the state. And the true, and darker, story of Pocahontas is linked with the “first barbecue.” Join author and historian James C. Clark as he unearths a history hidden beneath swamps and sand for years.

Book signing will follow.
