Indian River Lagoon Chronicles

The Indian River Lagoon Chronicles- A Narrative Paddle Adventure Through the History and Natural History of the Indian River Lagoon, a new book by John Kumiski, delves into the fascinating history and natural history of the Indian River Lagoon.

On December 1, 2013, five intrepid paddlers launched their vessels at JB’s Fish Camp in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. Their destination? Jupiter, Florida, 160 miles distant. During their nineteen day voyage of discovery they travel the length of the Indian River Lagoon, meeting birds, snails, manatees, and mangroves, dolphins, scientists, restaurateurs, and seagrasses, other paddlers, the ghost of Henry Flagler, and much more.

Into the tale of their journey is woven the forgotten history of the people who lived along the lagoon’s banks- Indians, soldiers, settlers, agriculturalists, fishermen, treasure hunters, entrepreneurs, dredgers and many others.

“The story of the Indian River Lagoon, one of Florida’s most fantastic natural resources, needed to be told,” said author John Kumiski. “What better way to tell it than by using a paddle adventure as a narrative thread to bind it all together?”

Relive their journey between the covers of The Indian River Lagoon Chronicles- A Narrative Paddle Adventure Through the History and Natural History of the Indian River Lagoon, a wonderful book!
