About this product
- DescriptionThe westernmost counties that make up the Florida panhandle are often given short shrift in the state's comprehensive histories and derided as a Redneck Riviera in tourism brochures. In Treasures of the Panhandle Brian Rucker takes readers on a unique tour of his home region, highlighting the historic treasures and natural wonders found there. From Escambia along the Alabama border to Franklin on the banks of the Apalachicola River, the twelve counties of the panhandle include battlefields from the Redstick War of 1813-1814 and the First Semile War four years later, twenty-four state parks, three state forests, one national forest, and a national seashore. There are caves (!) here, the world's largest air force base, and the first European settlement in North America. Treasures of the Panhandle is ideal for anyone interested in heritage tourism or eco-tourism. It offers additional information on w-lost treasures, as well as complete lists of National Register sites and Historical Markers.
