    1 thought on “A Land Remembered, Volume 2”

    1. This is an exciting story told in the time period of Old Florida down to the modern era. It chronicles three generations of early settlers in Florida. My entire family loved it. I recommend this student version to adults, especially if they would appreciate a little language editing and removal of "amoral behavior." The original adult version is a bit gorier and I prefer this softened version.

    2. This is a fantastic book! My son was asked to read it for school so it is simply written, a young adult novel, but really, really good, particularly if you are a Floridian. The story takes place in Central Florida and begins in the early 1800's but takes you through the hardships of one family through 3 generations of living and surviving in Florida. It's a quick read so READ IT.

    3. This is an excellent book about a families struggles, in the 1800s of Florida. You can really get a feel, after reading this book, about old Florida and how it used to be, before all the modern technologies of today. One of the best books, I have ever read.Has anyone else read this?

    4. it continues from book 1 and is very like book 1 so to see what happens, youw ill have to read the book and even this book is better.
