First EditionThe Bedford/St. Martin’s Florida Editorial Board©2013
Inside this book, you’ll find works from everywhere in Florida—from the sand, the swamp, and the sea to deep pine forests, vibrant cities, and, of course, Disney World. The stories, poems, essays, images, and historical documents are but a sampling of the rich and diverse writings from and about Florida. Each work is introduced by a biographical headnote and prereading prompt and followed by questions for discussion and writing. We invite you to enjoy this collection and hope it enriches your own perspective on the sunshine state.
