Ask about Florida
Five hundred and thirty-eight questions and their answers about the State of Florida from its origins to the present day cover such subjects as the Native Americans, the Spanish explorers, wars for dominance, the history of religion, politics, population, resources, wildlife and remarkable people that lent their imagination, hard work and dedication to the state. This book was written with various readers in mind. Floridians will find this an easy-to-read review of historical events, and other useful information about their state. Then there are those visitors to Florida who may want to get an overall grasp on how the state grew from its origins in the fifteen hundreds to the present day. Many may want to compare Florida's development with those of other states that grew under the Spanish domination. Those who know quite a bit about Florida may wish to test their knowledge and score their correct answers. Others may find that short bits of information can more easily be absorbed than pages upon pages of data. "Ask About Florida" makes this easy for everyone. JAMES J.
