I've read this book three times and each time I find something new. I've had the privilege of working and living in the area the author writes about. One truly intriguing aspect about the areas Smith refers to is they (for the most part)are still unchanged and undeveloped. Although the characters are fictitious, each trial and tribulation they encountered are based on well-documented Florida history. Anyone interested in visiting the areas written about should visit the Kissimmee River State Park north of Okeechobee and Fish Eating Creek on the west side of Okeechobee. (Note: The homestead the characters settled are most likely refered to as somewhere in the Kissimmee River State Park.) It's one thing to read a great book and imagine what the areas written about look like, it's completly different to be able to actually see the location for yourself! My wife is from Ft. Drum and her great Grand Father actually drove one of the last heards of cattle to Punta Rassa and then down to Cuba at the turn of the 20th century. Her father still works cows north of Okeechobee and the first time I saw him 'turn' a cow with a whip, I though I was looking at Tobias.

Having lived nearly my whole life in Florida, I enjoyed reading about the history of the state from the Civil War on, which is rarely written about. It lagged a little in some spots, but I mainly take issue with the end. Solomon Macivey is an embittered man who places blame on others for what he's done.
