Galveston: Beyond the sunny beaches lies a real place of history and humanty. Spanish Conquistadors, Jean Lafitte and buried treasure; shipping, cotton, merchandising, manufacturing, culture, opera, publishing; great fortunes made and lost and made again. The Island faced the full force of war, fire, flood and hurricanes, and always the memory of the Great Storm of 1900. Memorable characters and celebrities flourished here and Bill Cherry relates their tales and also the tales of the ordinary and special people who loved and struggled and sometimes succeed in those extraordinary times.

About the Author:

Bill Cherry born in Galveston and raised in the 40's and 50's, a fabled time of a vibrant cosmopolitan seaport open to gambling, prostitution, and wise guys. Bill graduated from North Texas State University and for 35 years was a real-estate broker on the Island all the while he pursued his dream to be a jazz pianist and author. His weekly column in the Galveston County Daily News was the source of these stories.
