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.

    " This was a thoroughly engaging book for me, but I love stories of old Florida. Much like Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings book, The Yearling, this work of historical fiction, describes the early days of rustic, undeveloped Florida, replete with palmettos, cypress trees, swamps, and loads of wildlife. "

    " I LOVE the history but wish he had made the characters more personal... I felt like they were just there to carry out the story and I wasn't particularly emotionally connected to them. "

    " This book was recomended to me and I have to say that I really enjoyed reading about my home state. It never occured to me how hard it was for people to habitat this state in its wild and unseen before splendor. I would suggest anyone read this book about a families struggles and love for a land they loved. "
