Description
When Henry Flagler arrived at the island of Palm Beach in April 1893 it was a dense tangle of Palmetto brush and mangroves. Within a year he had built the Royal Poinciana Hotel, and two years later what was to become the legendary Breakers. Now Palm Beach has become synonymous with exclusivity, a fabled landscape intertwined with the colorful lives of its famous protagonists. Standiford brings alive a fabled place and the characters-- the rich, famous and infamous alike-- who have been drawn to it. -- adapted from jacket
