Written by fifth-generation family member Robert C. "Bob" Broward, this meticulously researched work is profusely illustrated with many never-before-published photographs and the author's own drawings.
It tells the story of this pioneer family's arrival in the Spanish colony of East Florida in the late 1700s through the Civil War, the Reconstruction era, the Governorship of Napoleon Bonaparte Broward, and up to present day. It will be of interest to researchers, historians, and casual readers of Florida history. It will also be a prized volume for the numerous members of the Broward family, which is one of the oldest and largest in Florida.
