Overview

Full of essays dealing with Florida's history in Gene Burnett's easygoing style. Careful research and eclectic choice of topics make history good reading that educates and entertains. Each volume divides Florida's people and events into Achievers and Pioneers, Villains and Characters, Heroes and Heroines, War and Peace, and Calamities and Social Turbulence. Many essays were originally published in Florida Trend — a bit of Florida history in each issue for over 15 years — a tribute to Burnett's appeal. A course in Florida history and a good read, too.
