Here, readers will witness how it is like to live in a rural area, where life remains simple
amidst the modern world.
Martin begins by introducing a few essential things in rural Florida, such as cow whips.
Used to drive cattle, a cow whip is part of a cowboy's work tools. Anyone who could really
work one was something special. Where there are cowboys, there are also horses and saddles,
and the author shares how he and his brother yearned to have one in their youth. He also takes
readers on Florida summers and fi shing trips, where some of his most treasured childhood
memories took place.
From remembering the chickens at their backyard, hot peppers as staple condiments,
hunting trips, holiday food, family, and more, Martin gives readers a nostalgic feeling of
familiarity and memories of home. Growing Up In Rural Florida is not only a book that features
culture, but also encourages people to look back at their own past and relive moments as if it
were yesterday.
