I didn't even know this book existed until I began to do research for my own book project about the river. As a creationalist and a student of ancient American history I disagree with some of the authors assumptions but I loved the book and found her writing style very absorbing. I certainly learned a lot and it has further kindled my desire to continue my project.
The Hillsborough River played such a vital role is the development of Tampa and I highly recommend the book to anyone who has any kind of attachment to the river or has an interest in how Tampa came to be.
Gloria Jahoda's writing is a gift to all of us--in and outside of Florida--who know or want to know the sights, sounds, history, and topography of a state that is changing rather quickly now. Her writing is so easy to read but filled with more feeling and descriptions than seem possible to be conveyed by words.
Having newly moved to Tampa, this book is the invitation I need to feel welcomed in an environment very different from the Tennessee I left. The significance of PLACE is celebrated.
