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.

    Story
    "well told sorrowful truth"

    A man I met on the Peace River recommended this gem as a glimpse into Florida's past, from forgotten Cracker life to the unyielding destruction of Florida's wilderness for a false Caribbean fantasy as experienced by 3 generations of an endearing family living on the southern fringe of the known world.

    "Felt like I'm a time traveler."

    Having traveled around Florida in an RV for 8 years, plus having hunted and raised horses, the story came alive. I been to all areas mentioned in the book. I feel that I was along on the cattle drive. Awsome story.

    "The unknown Florida Story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    He's a great narrator. His changes are always so subtle with each character. He's very easy to listen to.


    If you could rename A Land Remembered, what would you call it?

    I wouldn't
