Finding the Fountain of Youth: Ponce de León and Florida's Magical Waters

For the last few years, I've collected visual treasures for this book, to tell the story of my state and its magical waters through the artifacts and images of popular culture. From the story of Ponce de Leon, who landed on a peninsula already populated by hundreds of thousands of indigenous peoples, to the the state's 21st century struggles to protect its water, this book covers how the myth of the fountain of youth has shaped our thinking.
