Mr. Knowles has followed himself with another wonderful book centered around the 1935 storm. This book was of particular interest to me since I grew up around the corner from the Duane family often visiting them at the Bahama House where they lived for many years. I knew their 3 daughters and often played with the youngest daughter. I remember so much of the story retold concerning their dad "Buck" Duane and the 1935 storm. He truly should have been recognized for saving the people who were on Long Key during the storm. Again, the pictures are a wonderful contribution to the story and thank you Patty for saving and sharing them.

I enjoyed this book very much. I believe I would enjoy any book by Thomas N. Knowles because he's takes such pains to research and accurately document his findings. The book was interesting and I loved the old photos. If you want to get an honest account of Long Key back in the day this is the book for you.

I love books on the History of Florida, especially the Florida Keys. This is an excellent book on the Long Key Fishing Camp. Mr. Knowles did his research, great details.
