She introduces you to nature in all its beauty and to simple living by the finest folks of high standing from all over the world. She leads you through a graceful whirl into the happiness of this gentle people.

She gives you a moving history of ages gone before, which makes you want to linger in their memories before sliding forward into a world yet to be. She shares with you the sense of the limitlessness of space and time.

She shows you islands which are lost places of the earth, set apart from the land, embraced forever by the sea where clouds, winds and tides are not and cannot be controlled by the hands of man.

About The Author

Florence Fritz's life was characterized by sterling qualities of honesty, integrity and an extremely fascinating sense of the beauty in nature. Her romanticism led her to see the wonders of every living thing and to sense the meaning of historical movements as they unfold and then fade away to leave a legacy for those who follow.

Her lifestyle brought her in contact with diverse peoples and interests. She has been a Red Cross Disaster Relief executive in Florida floods and for six years a caseworker among homesteaders, frontier folks, and Seminole Indians. She was the first woman mayor of Fort Myers when there were only three lady mayors in the whole United States.

For more than thirty years her avocation has been historical research, gathering pioneer stories, photographs, and sketches of Florida's Everglades, coasts and islands.

For eighteen years of that time she edited and owned Hello Stranger ... a magazine she founded in 1944 to welcome World War II military to southwest Florida. This and her tourist guides and smaller books have gone around the world.
