Annotation This book traces the evolution of Seminole lifestyles from the isolated chickees of the early 20th century to the crowded boardwalks of tourist attractions. At the dawn of the 20th century, Florida's Seminoles lived in isolated settlements across the impenetrable Everglades, bolstering their subsistence economy by trading with small-town merchants in Ft. Lauderdale and Ft. Myers. Disease, technology, federal bureaucracy and especially tourism affected the Seminoles. Today a new image of the Seminoles has arisen, one of successful capitalists hosting tax-free 'smoke shops', casino gambling, and a Web site.
