The Best Of... series
"It takes a fishing village", is the sub-title of this program. Cortez Village is on the West Coast of Florida, Florida on Anna Maria Bay South of just south of Tampa, It is home to the descendants of West Coast pioneer fishing families. We found a group of people who have made their living from the sea since the 1800's. Their story is told by survivors of hurricanes, un-just laws, and the growing wall of condos that threatens their existence.
This tape tells the tales of triumphs and tragedies that have held this small fishing village together for the past century, and much much more.
