    Adventure Tales From Florida's Past

    "Your creative way of conveying the atmosphere and turmoil of the era is a great benefit to those of us who haven't thought about it much. Really appreciate your bringing these people to life again. You have honored their lives."

    Charlene L. Edge, author of Undertow: My Escape from the Fundamentalism and Cult Control of The Way International

    Adventure Tales from Florida's Past is thoroughly engaging from cover to cover, and the supplemental notes are both educational and enlightening. Highly recommended!

    The Young Naturalist's Guide to Florida

    “This well-written and thoughtful book should be assigned reading for Florida students of any age. For that matter, it wouldn’t be a bad idea for adult Floridians to read it, either.”

    Lake Lucy Tales

    “I read this lovely book with my heart in my mouth and tears in my eyes. Recollections of families who lived on Lake Lucy in the 30s and 40s, the details are vivid and the emotional attachments still undimmed. Highly recommended for lovers of Florida history.”
