The Ten Thousand Islands, Florida: A Watery Wilderness | Untold Stories

0



A maze of mangrove islands meanders from Marco Island to Florida Bay, an ever-changing tangle of trees and shallows that inspired a larger-than-life name — the Ten Thousand Islands. In this watery wilderness, hardy pioneers scratched out a living on high heaps of shells left by the Calusa Indians. In 1947, most of Florida’s final frontier became part of the new Everglades.

The sunshine state has a rich and colorful history. For hundreds of years the state has attracted dreamers, opportunists, inventors and fortune-seekers. WGCU’s Untold Stories aims to preserve the history of Southwest Florida communities.
