Col. Carrol A. Lake, engineer and author, spent two years interviewing the people of the Redlands area of South Florida to obtain the material used in this book. It is essentially factual and is all that is known of Edward Leedskalnin.
The story is told in the 1st and 3rd person to give the reader an intimate feeling and rapprochement with Leedskalnin’s actual life during the thirty years he spent building his masterpiece.
This book is a must read and until recently it has been almost impossible to find.
I ask that credit is remembered for the Historical Museum of Southern Florida in any copies made of this material.
I typed this copy myself very early in 2010 and it took me a long time.
