In 1946, at the age of nine, John Bailey arrived at the New River with his parents. John attended several of the area’s different schools – West Side, Davie, Naval Air, Central, and Fort Lauderdale High. Through his various local teachers John developed an abiding interest in his home town. Many of John’s personal experiences of growing up and living along the River are sprinkled throughout this book. His previous best selling history books include “Sentinel of the Jersey Cape,” “The Story of the Cape May Lighthouse; Cape Island,” “The Jewel of the Jersey Shore,” and “Juet’s Journal, Henry Hudson’s Explorations on the Half Moon.”
