Absolutley adored this book and will be passing it on to my grandchildren when I die. It is a fantastic tale of her life and very educational about the life of Florida Crackers, of which I am one, 5th generation born in Florida, grandkids are 7th generation born. A wonderful account of our culture here in the backwoods of Florida.

Show the life of the old Florida. Years before it became a destination place. I have been to the house, and eaten at the famous restaurant nearby. Lots of old time Florida crackers still live in this idyllic place. A moment frozen in time!

I am a fan of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings writings. I visited Cross Creek, one of her Florida homes on my last visit to Florida. Her books are a delight. I really enjoy her stories about life in early FL.

Majorie Rawlings was an amazing woman and way ahead of her time. Enjoyed the tour of her home and couldn't wait to start reading some of her books.
Child's book, very short, $8.95 too expensive! Love her, but some info wrong and not very thorough. Not even many pictures. Not good coverage of her life or her works.
