Guide not Text

Not what I wanted. Wanted actual text/book this was a teaching guide to the textbook. Everything about the seller was fine, it was just my misunderstanding of the purchase.

After living in Florida most of my life, I received a new education about the State that is not taught there. Extremely interesting, a fun book to read, it is well worth the time to read it.

Back in time

What a wonderful book. Anyone that lives in or visits Florida, outside of just going to Disney, should read this historical novel. The author paints in words, pictures of a time past that is far far different from the Florida of today.. Easy to read but very hard to put down.

Great Florida History

I loved this book. Having recently moved to Florida, I was pretty unaware of the history of this state. This story is captivating and very educational. In fact many Florida teachers use this book to help students become more aware of Florida's history. It takes us all the way from the Civil War right up to the late 20th century. Most of it revolves around the struggles of a cattle ranching family, that then expanded into citrus growing. We read this in my book group, which led to great discussion.
