I have just completed the reading of this pure and simple story of a family of pioneer settlers, the MacIveys, in Florida. Full of plenty of guts and gumption, the family sets out to the undomesticated land in Florida and meets up with countless obstacles along the way. Astonishing characters and subliminal undertones of fine values, A Land Remembered, is effortless to read and makes known the history of the settlement of Florida, post-Civil War.
While playing golf once at the Shingle Creek Golf Club in Orlando, I noted a restaurant there which was named for the book.
Worth a read, especially if one spends any time at all in the state of Florida.
