Overview

From Key Largo to the Dry Tortugas, this true insider's guide to Florida's subtropical islands offers a comprehensive look at famous attractions such as daily sunset celebrations, historic bars, renowned restaurants, and America's only living coral reef. Supplemented with information about local hidden gems, it offers tips about secret gardens, hip diners, and beachfront bistros. The swashbuckling history of the Keys and some of its most famous inhabitants are brought to life with charming text—from Jimmy Buffett to the ever-present ghosts of Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams.

Reviews

"There are a million stories in Key West and June Keith seems to know them all." —Dave Barry

"A June Keith column is like a Key West sunset—once it begins you're hooked until it ends." —Kenley Jones, NBC News

"[June Keith's] love for the people of Key West makes one wish her type thrived all over small-town America." —Gene Gabriel Moore, Southern Voice

"June Keith certainly is an engaging writer. She is a pleasure to read." —Alan Shearer, The Washington Post Writers Group
