an entertaining book that is full of forgotten stories about the Treasure Coast,
Rick has practiced law in Stuart for over 37 years at the same law firm
that was founded by his grandfather, Evans Crary, Sr. in 1927.

From Amazon.com's write-up of his book "A Treasure We Call Home", "Rick has spent years
of digging through rare books and buried records searching for Florida's forgotten past.
And now, he takes us on a treasure hunt through time to uncover enduring significance
in the vanishing history of Florida and her hidden Treasure Coast."
