With St. Augustine's 450th anniversary comes this new collection of seldom-heard stories from the Ancient City's past. Discover how a single guard boat thwarted a pirate fleet attack with a diversionary fife-and-drum performance and how the mere act of a Spanish ship captain lopping off the ear of a British merchant sparked the War of Jenkins Ear. From Spanish dons to barking Methodists and all the outrageous characters in between, master storyteller Drew Sappington entertains as he puts the story back in history through this fast and funny tour of Florida's hidden past.
