Five Thousand Years On The Loxahatchee: A Pictorial History Of Jupiter-Tequesta, Florida
Five Thousand Years on the Loxahatchee: A Pictorial History of Jupiter-Tequesta, Florida
A generous, forgiving river in Florida brought prosperity to generations of Indians, farmers, traders and tourists in the form of clear waters, flocks of shorebirds, stately cypress, succulent oysters and a cornucopia of fresh fish. In this book are the words and over 250 pictures of the people who have lived in its watershed from Jupiter Island to Juno Beach, from Jupiter Farms to Jupiter Inlet. It s also the story of the river itself: the struggle of a delicate waterway system to accommodate the crushing demand of those who want to share in its abundance.
