Meet the rancher’s grieving wife and the newspaper editor, the bride and the powerful business woman, the sawmill worker’s daughter, the pianist, and the courageous and beautiful “woman of color,” among others, who transformed Fort Myers from a cowboy town into the cultural center of southwest Florida.

You’ll be amazed.
