Florida's Snowbirds : Spectacle, Mobility, and Community since 1945, Paperback / softback Book

Florida's Snowbirds : Spectacle, Mobility, and Community since 1945 Paperback / softback

Description

Developing numerous themes, including leisure, state-promoted tourism, citizenship, and business investment, Godefroy Desrosiers-Lauzon considers advertisements, movies, policymakers, and the behaviour of snowbirds in Florida to provide the most thorough study of the vacation state to date.

He also looks at the temporary communities of Canadians, Quebecois, New Englanders, and Mid- Westerners that develop, showing how they blur the lines that usually divide national and regional identities, and youth and age. An insightful work full of amusing details, Florida's Snowbirds pieces together a complete cultural atlas of Florida Snowbirds that goes far beyond the familiar postcards they send home
