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.

His weekly column in the Galveston County Daily News was the source of these stories.
