This presentation examines the relationship of people to the land throughout Florida history. Starting with Native American settlement, it shows how Florida has shaped human existence in the state and how human have re-shaped the state itself. It focuses on how Floridians have worked to turn water into land and land into water. It also looks at the issue of water itself and how Floridians have gone from concerns of too much water to too little water in less than a century. Finally, it examines the relationship of hurricanes to shaping Florida as a state and a society. Presented by Dr. Steve Noll.
