Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Steve Rajtar came to Florida for college and decided to stay. The combination of a love of the outdoors and local history led him to establish of over 150 historical tour routes through the communities of Central Florida, which can be used by anyone to get “up close and personal” with the region’s historic sites. He has written several books on various aspects of hiking and history and loves to guide tours by foot, bicycle and kayak.
Kelly Goodman, Steve’s daughter, is an Orlando native who spent much of her childhood in the Central Florida outdoors, where she developed a love of local history and culture. A graduate of the University of Central Florida, this is Kelly’s first book, as well as her first collaboration with her dad.
