The Last Beach Boy: A True American Story of Life and Adventure
Graduating from high school in 1954, Bobby Solano’s future seemed extremely limited. He was descended from generations of Minorcans, and his family lived on the threshold of poverty, searching Northeast Florida’s beaches for mullet and turtle eggs, hunting hogs, and gopher turtles. These experiences taught him that hard work, determination, and taking swift action could do more than put food on the table. As he put the lessons of his youth to work as an adult, Bobby Solano—The Last Beach Boy—achieved success beyond his wildest dreams.
