The Other Side of the River: Historical Cape Coral Book


By Betsy Zeiss

Until the birth of Cape Coral in the late 1950s, the area was simply known as “the other side of the river” by the homesteaders, loggers, cattlemen, professional fisherman, and the sportsmen, whose story is woven in the pages of this book. A one-room schoolhouse, a vast timbering operation, a bridge that drowned, and a quail preserve are among the topics that the author explores as little known facts, gleaned from pioneer families, surface in this tale. Those who shared their memories revealed a deep and abiding affection for the place today known as Cape Coral.
