Taking its name from a fortification established more than 160 years ago during the Second Seminole War, Fort Lauderdale boasts a history stretching back 5,000 years before the first white settlers arrived in the eighteenth century. From beautiful tales of the "mysterious" New River that helped launch the community to more recent stories of rum running and gambling, segregation and integration, and boom and bust, the history of this Florida city is told here through the everyday lives of those who lived it.
In less than one hundred years, Fort Lauderdale grew from a wilderness stagecoach stop and trading post to become one of America's favorite tourist destinations and the seat of government for Florida's second-most-populous county. Historic Photos of Fort Lauderdale captures the story of that remarkable growth, through striking black and white photographs carefully selected from the finest collections. In these pages are seldom-seen images of a dramatic past: the Seminoles, early residents of the tropical wilderness; the arrival of railroads and the growth of tourism; farmers and their crops; and the creation of canals and roads and airfields. From the days of wooden stores and empty beaches to the era of high-rises and Spring Break crowds, through hurricanes, wars, and times of boom-and-bust, Historic Photos of Fort Lauderdale tells the story of the Venice of America,"" presented in a unique collection of never-to-be-gotten images.

Go From Stressed to Strong is about the war with the unhealthy habits of our stressful lives. Laurie A. Watkins provides readers with practical and proven tools she designed along with health and wellness experts to get on the path to a healthy lifestyle in a 24-7 world. Prompted by Watkins’s own experiences while working inside the world of two presidential campaigns and other high-performing, stressful working environments, she shares her own stories as well as stories from prominent men and women across a wide range of industries on their experiences and how they came out the other side. Bestselling author and TV host Bill Nye “the Science Guy,” 2016 CrossFit Games competitor and RN Christy Adkins, professional speaker and Army veteran Dan Nevins, restaurateur Jamie Leeds, two-star Michelin-rated chef José Andrés, and former White House staffer Phil Larson are some of the many voices featured. Go From Stressed to Strong is for everyone with a busy lifestyle who thinks they can’t fit in being healthy—whether a CEO, a full-time student, a CPA during tax season, or a full-time parent. Watkins reveals how to handle specific challenges to health—sleep deprivation, poor diet, and stress. In doing so, she encourages readers to command their day now, giving them the energy and strength today in order to make it through tomorrow and the day after that.
"An underground post-modernist who writes comic fiction crammed with details adopted from pop culture and the daily news. The long title story, a resonant meditation on the themes of relationships, AIDS, and mortality, proves him capable of less self-conscious, more serious (though not less comic) work." — Kirkus Reviews
