Overview
Tireless inventor and reckless speed demon Glenn Curtiss left a trail of firsts in his wake, including patents, transatlantic flights and a 1907 land speed record. James Bright was a fellow visionary who partnered with Curtiss to develop the communities of Hialeah, Miami Springs and Opa Locka. Told here for the first time, this captivating story is one of daring entrepreneurship in the midst of the south Florida land boom of the early 1920's.
