Our books and maps are not intended to be a complete collection of information, however, the collection contains a number of books that are either self-published or out of print.
The majority of the books in this section were written by Ed Winn. Mr. Winn is a friend, lifelong Florida resident who grew up on the river has studied it and written about it for more than 50 years
This book by Fred A. Hopwood chronicles the era of steamboats in the upper St. Johns River, prior to 1880. But their presence in this region is lost to history. Many names and events have been overlooked, but it is my hope that this book may be useful to history buffs in the future understanding of how and why this Country of Brevard has grown to be the nice county it is today.
