A fantastic marketing piece for South Florida, meant to be distributed throughout the country to entice business and families to emigrate. The book had three stated goals: to prove to grain and stock farmers of the Corn and Wheat belts that Florida was a more profitable place to produce; that it's a wonderful place to live; to promote the movers and shakers of the area. Dozens of photos accompany a detailed portrayal of the present economic circumstances, a history of Tampa, writeups on Kissimmee, Lakeland, Tarpon Springs, Winter Haven and more. There are also a couple dozen biographies of prominent folks including the Ringling Brothers, John and Charles. A comprehensive look at South Florida commerce in the years before the Depression.
