Outstanding and historical book warranting republication.
Book is a collection of magazine articles and short stories from the late 19th & early 20th Century focused on Florida recovering from the Civil War and in development from almost raw territory. Articles display evolution of (American) English,provides superb insight into the how the USA was changing, and is a marvel of commentary on natural wildlife. Book is focused on Florida, but would make an excellent text for students of American history. It provides solid insight into the social dominance of New York City during the turn of the century. Title is somewhat misleading in that it is not a collection of entertaining tales so much as it is a selected insight into an evolving state (Florida) and how it fit in with the nation and influenced what we are today. Photographs and other illustrations are good and offer a supporting presentation in and of themselves. All in all, this is quite a bargain.
