This book is probably geared toward tween boys, but as a grown woman, I still enjoyed it primarily because it transported me back to a simpler time and place. The story is fast-paced with an implausibly happy ending.

As for the racial undertones that the other reviewer mentioned, the book does deal with race as the main family is white and they moved to a primarily black settlement. Everyone gets along with no animosity. The "n word" appears as a black man referred to himself that way. By today's standards as far as I know that still occurs. There was also a derogatory word for a white person.

My only criticism would be that the characters are a bit two dimensional as it is told in 3rd person from no one in particular's view.

This book, written over 100 years ago, reminds me of adventure books that I read as a boy. There is plenty of action and it's a breezy type read. Although some of the colloquial language is dated and many may say is not politically correct, I look at the time and found this book an easy, gentle way to pass the time.

This a great story and a very easy read. Adventure into old Florida and see history. I am excited to see books like this about Florida still as fresh as always.

Late-nineteenth century regional literature. As is the case with many other books in this genre, it is overly sentimental as well as reflecting the racial attitudes of its time. However, the attention to detail is impressive. The descriptions of the St. Marks River, its flora, fauna and many other details remain true today. I assume the fictional town of Wakulla is based on the extinct city of Magnolia on the St. Marks river. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in historical fiction in this region of Florida.
