    15. I just finished reading The River Way Home and really liked it I liked it because it was a setting in the outdoors and the characters were always running into a lot of interesting animals, people and different situations Queenie, The Chief and Billy worked together using their natural skills I also liked this book because I ve been to Florida several times and it gave me a different perspective of Florida I thought it was cool how they did every thing without modern technology.

    16. I love living in this part of Florida What a delight to read this engaging tale set in and around Stuart in 1914 I enjoyed learning the history of this beautiful place through the eyes of three young adventurers as they set off on a quest to tour a lake only to discover so much about their land and themselves.

    17. This was an exciting book that explores Florida s history and rich cultural makeup Through the adventures of some very intelligent children, you visualize Florida and the untapped potential people saw in it during 1914 With great attention and focus, the author explores the frontiers discovered in Florida and a world that was viewed by hunters and Seminole warriors of great fame.

    18. Not being a fan of former Martin Co Commisioner Mary Dawson, I was pleased with her research and tales of Old Florida Her fiction combined the real and unreal extremely well of what the early settlers had to endure Should become a must read for the schools.
