John Dickey is a third-generation native who grappled with the aftermath of Hurricane Charley.

The film runs approximately 30 minutes and features pictures and video never seen before by the public.A DVD of “Earth, Water and Wind” may be purchased after the showing for $100 to support the CIHS. To make a reservation, call the Captiva Civic Association at 472-2111.
