Houses tell the human side of history. In this survey of restored residences, their stories are intertwined with those of their owners in a domestic history of Florida from the days of Spanish occupation to the Rawlings House in Cross Creek, Vizcaya in Miami, and President Harry S. Trumans "Little White House" in Key West. Most of these houses are museums now; others are restaurants or bed-and-breakfasts. This new edition is updated and illustrated with color photographs.
