Castles in the Sand: The Life and Times of Carl Graham Fisher

Mark S. Foster

Mark Foster's biography of Carl Graham Fisher, primary developer and promoter of Miami Beach, reveals the emergence of a new American way of life. Fisher's transformation of the South Florida landscape into a tourist's dream of golf, polo, deep sea fishing, and luxury hotels and his animation of that dream with bronzed lifeguards, bathing beauties flashing new swimsuit styles and visiting dignitaries who generated a stream of tantalizing headlines.
