More about this book:

Many names of Florida places evoke fantastic images: Caloosahatchee, Okeechobee, Loxahatchee, Everglades, Miami—to mention only a few. Florida's places were often named to honor prominent local citizens such as postmasters, landowners, or war heroes; Jacksonville, for example, was named for Florida's first American governor, Andrew Jackson. Later the state's interest in attracting new residents produced names that suggested pleasant places to live, such as Belle Glade and Avon-by-the-Sea. From Alachua (from the Seminole for jug) to Zolfo Springs (from the Italian for sulphur), Florida Place Names delights and educates with a rich and varied offering of Florida lore.
