The book Faces On The Frontier: Florida Surveyors And Developers In The 19TH Century by Joe Knetsch. ISBN: 1-886104-24-7
Joe Knetsch has successfully captured the problems and triumphs of early surveyors in Florida as they battled hostile Native Americans, disease, weather and political pressures to "lay out" the Florida Peninsula for settlement. Without these intrepid pioneers of the 19th Century, the Sunshine State would still be a daunting wilderness of swamps and jungles.
