This is a great book! Besides learning a lot, I laughed out loud all the way through, and couldn't put it down. It is written by locals who obviously know and love the Keys. Detailed, with all the travel info you could ever need, it also tells fascinating historical and biographical stories. Written in a breezy style reflecting the spirit of the Keys, and full of beautiful photos, you learn all about the human, animal, and plant inhabitants. There's a helpful chapter on traveling with kids and dogs, and a lot of other info you didn't know you needed but will be happy to have. Every page is a delight, and even the locals love this book. You can easily click on chapter titles to go right to each chapter, and the same goes for subheadings in each chapter. Nifty!
