Allman's engaging, eye-opening, and heavily researched history of Florida spans half a millennium, from the myth of Ponce de León's Fountain of Youth to the 2012 shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, and it is a fulsome cavalcade of would-be conquistadors, epically corrupt and racist politicians, and oligarch wannabes.
