Destin's Founding Father: The Untold Story of Leonard Destin by H.C. "Hank" Klein


Enjoy Hank Klein's newest release. The book follows the story of New London, Connecticut, fisherman Leonard Destin from his shipwreck in 1835 to his time in New Orleans and eventual settlement at East Pass, Florida in Santa Rosa County. Leonard Destin's life, especially before he arrived at East Pass in 1851 has been thoroughly researched. He came from a very interesting family of seafarers and we now know what he did for the sixteen years after he left his home in New London, Connecticut, until he actually settled at East Pass, which is today called Destin, Florida.
