5.0 out of 5 stars Missing Old Florida February 24, 2009
Format:Hardcover
I didn't realize how much I miss old Florida until I got Patty DiRienzo's Florida. My grandfather moved to Venice, winter home of Ringling Brothers Circus, in the mid-1950s. When my sisters and I visited from the north, the salty air and glorious light hit us like magic. My grandfather taught us night fishing for snook with a lamp swung out over the water. Over the years we roamed south and north, canoeing with gators in the everglades, swimming with manatees in the springs, even catching stingrays on St. Pete Beach. Shuffleboard was everywhere, as were trailer parks and all-you-can-eat fish fries. The wonderfully old-timey photos and quotations from old Floridians here evoke more memories than I thought I had. Patty DiRienzo says that she created this book as a way of preserving "Old Florida." She certainly has succeeded.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breath taking tour of Old Florida February 23, 2009
Format:Hardcover
This is a beautiful book - it feels so rich in your hands. Beautiful images of old Florida sites - many on the back roads and soon to be gone. A wonderful gift for anyone who has loved Florida or visited Florida. I can't wait to get on the road and see some of these landmarks. Luckily I live very close to many of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Photography! February 19, 2009
Format:Hardcover
A Journey Through Florida is exactly what it is! The interviews are delightful as are the images the author has captured. Great coffee table or office book to share with both "in and out of towners".
