An Ice Age Mystery
Unearthing the secrets of the Old Vero Site.
Rody Johnson grew up in Vero Beach, hearing of the Ice Age Vero Man that had been discovered in 1916 by Elias Sellards, to the shock of the scientific community of the day and world at large, a Florida Geologist discovered human remains. Rody choose to record the historical significance and put it in a logical reference, Archaeologist Andy Hemmings was inspired to do further research on the mystery that was the Old Vero Man.
Johnson is the author of five books including:
Different Battles, the Search for a World War II Hero, recounting the story of a U-boat attack off Vero's beach in 1942, and The Rise and Fall of Dodgertown - Sixty Years of Dodger Baseball in Vero Beach.
Rody's Book is also available at the Old Vero Site. The $25 payment is a donation to OVIASC.
