Journey Into History Flagler County Florida  (new Oct 2018)

Where is the real Florida?

Using your imagination to tour the lost history on Florida’s east coast. 

Florida is a unique treasure chest filled with historical treasure.  This book is your map and your imagination is the guide.  Indians, Spanish, French, British and finally Americans had ownership of Florida each offering you their own stories.

Using modern GPS locators and his research into legends Bill Ryan guides you to lost and forgotten places.  This book cruises through the rich history of the Flagler County area and the adjacent amazing East Coast of Florida. As a guide on the Flagler County Tour bus for 22 years he shares the many adventures with you.

Historian Bill Ryan takes you to some real, some imaginary and some lost places that reveal the hidden real Florida.  Here is your information to create your own family tours on the “what will we do today” question.

Here are researched lives and locations of our ancient ones, the Spanish, the British, the French and American settlers who created the rich history of Flagler County Florida, just south of long celebrated St. Augustine, America’s oldest city.  Bill takes you further south along the famous “Loop” route to the amazing Tomoka Park where exist links to our American History.  Here too was a site for the ancient ones, the original Indians who lived here for thousands of years before us.

Author William (Bill) Ryan is a director of the Flagler County Historical Society.  He retired to the Palm Coast Florida area after a long career in high technology photographic equipment and rode the popular Flagler County Historical tour bus for many years.  He is the author of seven books covering the early times of Florida and has long enjoyed travel with his avid bus riders.
