TWO CLASSIC FLORIDA BOOKS THAT YOU WILL ENJOY READING

A LAND REMEMBERED, by Patrick Smith

A Land Remembered is a bestselling novel by Patrick Smith that tells the story of three generations of the MacIvey family.

They rise from a dirt-poor Florida Cracker life to the wealth and standing of real estate tycoons in those three generations. Patrick's story covers the years from 1858 to 1968.

The story opens in 1858, when Tobias MacIvey arrives in the Florida wilderness to start a new life with his wife and infant son. He came down from Georgia, as did so many early Florida settlers.

ALAS BABYLON, by Pat Frank

Alas Babylon is a best selling novel by Pat Frank that was published in 1959. It is still very popular more than 50 years after it first hit the market.

The book deals with the effects of a nuclear war on the fictitious small central Florida town of Fort Repose.

Many think Fort Repose is based on the actual town of Mount Dora, Florida.
