The author researched the Jekyll’s story to learn about the people who designed, constructed, and managed the enormous transformation and he tells the fascinating story of the island, sharing facts from history books, primary documents, and untold stories from locals who have lived on the land for several decades. Discover how a private, secluded, and exclusive island came to be a state park with open and affordable access to everyone.
