"Historic Pensacola" is not a travel guide, but a history of the Pensacola area covering the era from Tristán de Luna's initial visit and colonization efforts, starting in 1559, up to the United States' acquisition of this port city in 1821. It is extraordinarily well written and profusely illustrated with maps, photographs, and reproductions of period illustrations. The writing is very clear and straightforward, but not juvenile. The font is a good size and spacing for easy reading. There is a comprehensive reference list and bibliography, and an excellent index. At the end of each chapter is a recipe for a food or drink related to the Pensacola area and the historical era which was covered in that chapter. This whimsical inclusion of recipes was unexpected for a history book from a major university publisher, but it works, and adds an additional dimension to the story.
I would recommend this book very highly to anyone interested in the colonial history of the Gulf coast, and specifically west Florida.
