I love books about Florida. Jeff writes about the real people of Florida. I love how he tells their story. The book is so interesting and I enjoy how he writes about the people. The book is good old Florida history. It's about people and places we would never think about.
The chapter on flamingos is really funny. I couldn'stop laughing!
