...<b>Some Kind of Paradise. <br>A Chronicle of Man and the Land of Florida</b>, Derr, Mark

A Chronicle of Man and the Land of Florida

Mew York: William Morrow, 1989 First Edition. Hardcover in Jacket 
Unread, Unopened; First Editon. Hint of a stain on lower rear spine corner.

"The history of Florida is the story of North America in miniature. By telling it with such eloquence and learning in ‘Some Kind of Paradise,’ Mr. Derr has revealed the dark side of the historian Frederick Jackson Turner’s famous hypothesis: our national character was indeed shaped by the frontier. . . . [Derr] writes with a journalist’s eye for telling details and an antiquarian’s fondness for digression and quirky facts. . . . The state’s tortuous journey from one extreme to the other is [his] subject, and he tackles it with brilliance and bravado."--New York Times Book Review
