    A Surprising Story

    I bought this at Fort Caroline National Memorial during a chance visit on a business trip. After a tour of the site I was browsing the bookstore for a history and the attendant recommended Painter in a Savage Land. This was history as story telling focused on an unknown (outside the art world) character, who played a role in a historical milestone (first European settlement attempt on mainland US near Jacksonville FL) of which most history buffs are probably unaware. There is a good account of the French attempt to settle at La Caroline and a glimpse into the first contact with the Timicula people of Florida. Where this book brought added enjoyment was where the author explored intersecting or tangential stories (a la Connections), bringing in other notables from English, French and American history (from Raliegh and Mary Queen of Scots, Admiral Coligny and even touching on Lincoln, Churchill and Hitler)leading into the world of art and embroidery and the establishment of the Ft. Caroline and Timicula Preserve by a well respected US congressman. Well written and engaging and displays the author's enthusiam for the mystery of his subject and the apparent importance of his work.
