 Forgotten Tales of Florida

With such a rich and significant history, it’s only natural that some of the best stories from the Sunshine State have been forgotten over time. Thankfully, master storyteller and St. Augustine resident Bob Patterson offers this collection of the strangest, most fascinating stories and legends in Florida’s history from coast to coast, swamp to swamp. Enjoy the saga of William Ellis, a North Florida nature whisperer who escaped from his nursing home with the help of his varmint friends; step into the murk and mystery of the vanishing tribes of the Everglades; and could there really be gator-hungry sharks lurking in the St. John’s River? These stories and so many more await when you explore the Forgotten Tales of Florida.

Review

This book is so full of Florida names and places that it is a treasure trove for those wishing to find a starting place to research Florida stories. Bob’s style of writing (and telling) provides an excellent example of how to craft a good story. –FSA StoryTimes, Spring 2010
