Publisher's Summary

Patrick D. Smith here tells the story of three generations of the MacIveys, a Florida family who battle the hardships of the frontier to rise from a dirt-poor Cracker life to the wealth and standing of real estate tycoons. The story opens in 1858, when Tobias MacIvey arrives in the Florida wilderness to start a new life, and ends in 1968 with Solomon MacIvey, who realizes that the land has been exploited far beyond human need. Between is a sweeping story rich in Florida history.

A best-selling novel of Florida historical fiction, A Land Remembered was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and received the state’s highest literary award from the Florida Historical Society, the 1986 Tebeau Prize for the Most Outstanding Florida Historical novel.

Great travel book!!

My husband and I listened to this book while traveling, for the first time ever we didn't want the drive to end. The narrator really brought the story and characters to life. We were so sad when the book ended.

Great book.

I read this a few years ago and have recommended it to many people. My granddaughter sent me the audio version and enjoyed it just as much. Probably my favorite book.
