This is a "must have" for anyone interested in Florida history, as it is the most thorough account written about the infamous Barber-Mizell feud--a feud which only really came to an end when the author (a descendant of the Mizells) married her first husband (a Barber).

The narrative is based on family tales and traditions passed down by both sides to their living descendants. But, Mrs. Shearhart also backs-up the stories with surviving documentation. And, she fearlessly includes some facts and revelations that previous generations may have been unwilling to put in print.

I read this book a few years back after spotting it in the library in Kissimmee. I've always been a Florida history buff, having been born and raised in nearby Oviedo, and after thumbing through the pages I decided to check it out. Let me tell you... I could not put it down! It held my attention from start to finish! After reading it, I ventured out to old cemeteries around the area to find these people mentioned in the book. I should have bought the book back then but now I'm doing so to add to my collection. A great read for anyone who wants to learn about the life and hardships of our Florida pioneers!!

I am a direct descendant of many persons chronicled herein. It is truly a fascinating story; better than anything Hollywood could imagine. I am forever grateful for the work and dedication of Mary Ida Bass Barber Shearhart for providing myself and future generations with a permanent record of our past.
