aibmsh book coverAmelia Island: Birthplace of the Modern Shrimping Industry. This book tells the story of how a small barrier island community in Northeast Florida left its mark on a worldwide industry. At the beginning of the twentieth century, an assortment of upstart dreamers and pioneers living on Amelia Island made a series of innovations that would revolutionize commercial shrimping. Master fishermen, net makers, and boat builders from different parts of the world gravitated to the island, and this infusion of people from different backgrounds and cultures created a truly unique and diverse community. Shrimping and its symbiotic industries brought economic stability to an area in desperate need of direction, and the colorful characters that came along with the tide have become part of the island’s identity: past, present, and future. History is alive, and so are the people who make it. $22.99

Tidewater Amelia. Jan Johannes’s photographs remind us that the historic homes of the Tidewater continue to radiate the living, growing, and changing. This collection of photos offer insights into homes not as museums or archaeological sites, but as testimony of the eloquence of the era in which they grew, extolling the virtues of the Southern experience. They also remind us that without a record of these vestiges of our past, we face the new century without a map of where we came from and a context for who we are. Author: Jan Johannes $49.95
