Even Whiskers loves the book, Florida’s Big Dig


In this first comprehensive study of the Florida section of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, I trace the roots of the waterway all the way back to the Founding Fathers, through the history of the Canal Era and its difficult path in Congress and in Florida’s young legislature as one of the early public-private partnerships, drawing upon early records and land deeds, and tracking the history of the men who made it a reality.
