Remarkable Women of Sanibel and Captiva (Paperback) (Jeri Magg)
about this item
In the history of Sanibel and Captiva, countless women bucked the system to make their marks. In the early 1950s and ’60s, Sarita Van Vlick and Zee Butler led the fight to preserve the island from unbridled growth and destruction. Helene Gralnick, in the early ’80s, opened a small shop that became the foundation for Chico’s Inc. And it was city manager Judy Zimomra who put into practice policies that helped Sanibel flourish after the devastation of Hurricane Charley. Author and local historian Jeri Magg compiles the stories and celebrates the achievements of the remarkable women who forever shaped Sanibel and Captiva Islands.
