The AMAZING STORY of HIGHLAND BEACH, DELRAY BEACH, and BOCA RATON, FL (Coffee table book)
This book includes most of Southeast Florida's history dating back 8,000 years. From the town of Highland Beach, between Boca Raton, and Sandy's hometown of Delray Beach. This book is rich with personal remembrances. The Mayor and Councilmen of Highland Beach retained Sandy Simon to document the town's history in recognition of its 50th anniversary and to describe its unique history. Included is the find, in 1980, of an Indian mound on the sand dunes containing more than 160 human skeletons dated by archaeologists to be more than 3000 years old. This book also includes oral history interviews with long time residents.
"Easy to read, Very entertaining, Well researched, I enjoyed it very much and I highly recommend this book." Peg McCall, Archivist, Boca Raton Historical Society.
