Summary
  • "The St. Joe Company owns nearly one million acres, mainly in northwestern Florida, where undeveloped coastal and riverside landscapes boast some of the state's most scenic and ecologically diverse areas. The company is a powerful force in the real-estate development of northwest Florida, with access to the most influential people in government
  • In Green Empire, Kathryn Ziewitz and June Wiaz explain how St. Joe is poised to permanently and drastically alter the landscape, environment, and economic foundation of the Panhandle, the state's last frontier."
  • "Based on hundreds of sources - including company executives, board members, and investors as well as those outside the company - this factual and objective history describes the St. Joe Company from the days of its founders to the workings and dealings of its present-day heirs
  • For all readers concerned with land use and growth management, particularly those with an interest in Florida's fragile wildlife and natural resources, Green Empire will generate important debate about an often-overlooked part of the state and will invite public scrutiny of its largest landowner."--Jacket
