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.

If you could sum up A Land Remembered in three words, what would they be?

Best Book Ever!

What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

No other narrator would have done as great of job. His voice was perfect for the book.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book so much that I listened to it twice. By listening to this book as one of my first audiobooks, it ruined my taste for other books. There will never be a book as good as this one for me. I live in south Florida and I felt as though I knew where he was talking about all the time. I wish they would make a movie of this book.

Evocative of a Time and Place

This is a beautifully-written book that made me feel that I knew Florida before Disney and South Beach. This would be a great book to listen to as a family. It is filled with the joys, heartaches, and reminiscenses that are a part of many of our families' histories. My first 5-star book in some time.
