FOCUS ON SOUTHEAST FLORIDA
This Spring, Past Perfect Florida History and The Book Cellar are focusing on our own "backyard"--Florida's southeast coast! Known for its major cities, resort beaches, and subtropical beauty, this unique region also boasts a remarkable and often-overlooked past--the perfect subject for great reading! Enjoy historian Arva Moore Parks' fascinating and visually stunning volumes on The Forgotten Frontier and Miami The Magic City (detailed below) and George Merrick's Coral Gables "Where Your 'Castles in Spain' Are Made Real!". For children and adults alike, The Adventures of Charlie Pierce series by Harvey Oyer brings the stories of a real-life nineteenth century South Florida pioneer to life. We also have plentiful rare and used classics covering everything from shipwrecks, lighthouses and "Barefoot Mailmen" to railroads, architecture, and celebrities. Discover the wealth of history on Florida's Gold Coast with a book from Past Perfect Florida History and The Book Cellar! Visiting southeast Florida this season? Give us a call and stop by The Book Cellar in Deerfield Beach. Check our "About Us" page for directions.
