A quick read, yet a comprehensive history of Boca Raton and the institutions that make up our city. Sally Ling's many first-person vignettes are priceless in capturing Boca Raton's greatest institution of all'its people. As the Mayor, I thought that I knew all there was to know about Boca's history, but there are many tidbits I discovered for the first time. This book covers it all'from the beachfront to the old bean fields'as it chronicles Boca Raton's rapid transformation from frontier beginnings to the world-renowned status the city enjoys today. ?Steven Abrams, Mayor of Boca Raton Where fields of pineapple, tomatoes and beans previously grew to support farmers who occupied the fertile land, multi-story office buildings, upscale residential homes and plush golf courses now stretch to the horizon. From pirates burying doubloons in sand dunes to the farms and land booms that brought the city into being, this is the story of Boca Raton.
