Florida, Land Of ImagesFlorida, Land Of Images by Nixon Smiley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Nixon Smiley has collected a series of informative essays of various historical markers in Florida history. Each is very well written and most provide a very good back story to the points in history. I wish he had more details not otherwise found in so many other volumes, but I’m not sure how unique this book was when this book was published in 1972.

There are certainly better books that cover the material here more thoroughly, but this is a nice volume to introduce people to our fantastic Florida history.

The illustrations by Bob Lamme are very good.

Bottom line: I recommend this book.
