ANNA MARIA ISLAND IN PICTURES
Danny Stooksbury has spent the better part of a year collecting, processing and
organizing more than 100 pictures and facts that capture the wonder of Anna Maria Island, Fla. Mr. Stooksbury shares a few select images of the island’s past, yet chooses to focus the majority of his work on capturing the sights a visitor is likely to see on a visit to present-day Anna Maria Island. The beach, plants, animals and historic landmarks are all captured in stunning detail and displayed with a unique flare that manages to transfer the magical experience of being on Anna Maria Island to paper.
ANNA MARIA ISLAND IN WORDS
This is unlike other regional books due to the creative way Mr. Stooksbury has structured the book to present facts and regional information in easily
digested tidbits. Every page is built like a miniature museum. Each beautiful
image is placed to peak your curiosity and accompanied by fascinating facts and
interesting trivia. It will make everyone from a first-time visitor to a life-long
resident gain a deeper connection with Anna Maria Island.
