505 0  Introduction: Miami's lost history -- Before the north 
       bank -- The founders -- Spanish colonialism and the 
       doctrine of discovery -- Gateway to the Caribbean -- 
       Becoming southern -- the armed occupation of Fort Dallas. 
520    Formed seemingly out of steel, glass, and concrete, with 
       millions of residents from around the globe, Miami has 
       ancient roots that can be hard to imagine today. Before 
       the Pioneers takes readers back through forgotten eras to 
       the stories of the people who shaped the land along the 
       Miami River long before most modern histories of the city 
       begin. Andrew Frank begins the chronicle of the Magic 
       City's long history 4,000 years ago when Tequesta Indians 
       settled at the mouth of the river, erecting burial mounds,
       ceremonial centers, and villages. They created a network 
       of constructed and natural waterways through the 
       Everglades and trade routes to the distant Calusa on the 
       west coast. Centuries later, the area became a stopover 
       for Spanish colonists on their way to Havana, a haven 
       where they could shelter from storms and obtain freshwater,
       lumber, and other supplies. 
520 8  Frank brings to life the vibrant colonies of fugitives and
       seafarers that formed on the shores of Biscayne Bay in the
       eighteenth century. He tells of the emergence of the 
       tropical fruit plantations and the accompanying enslaved 
       communities, as well as the military occupation during the
       Seminole Wars. Eventually, the small seaport town 
       flourished with the coming of "pioneers" like Julia Tuttle
       and Henry Flagler who promoted the city as a place of 
       luxury and brought new waves of residents from the North. 
       Frank pieces together the material culture and the 
       historical record of the Miami River to re-create the 
       fascinating past of one of the world's most influential 
       cities.
