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.
