Review: Florida Historical Quarterly, Fall 2006, Vol. 85, No. 2

A Tropical Frontier is a delightful book, and those expecting to “look up” a few individuals will quickly find themselves drawn into the stories, moving from one family to the next as the community unfolds. Moreover, for scholars working in the area of frontier Florida, the compilation of so many names, landholding citations, and early biographies will provide an easy reference for their own research.

“Pioneers and Settlers of Southeast Florida is a magnificent undertaking! Tim Robinson has put a human face on all the folks who lived or passed through this area in the 19th Century."  Marjorie Watts Nelson, co-author of Pioneer Days on the Shores of Lake Worth.
