If you've been to Florida, especially to the Keys, you owe it to yourself to understand just how Key West came to be tethered to the rest of the world. Flagler's Folly came at a terrible cost both in dollars and in human lives, however the engineering marvel changed the fates of Florida and Key West forever.

I found this a very enjoyable look into true determination. I couldn't put it down.
