Florida's Past, Volume One, People and Events That Shaped the State

By Gene M. Burnett

Virtually every month for fourteen years, Gene Burnett wrote a history piece under the title “Florida’s Past” for Florida Trend, Florida’s respected magazine of business and finance. This first volume of collected essays from that series proved so popular among book readers that two more volumes have been published. We are now proud to make them available in paperback. Burnett’s easygoing style and his sometimes surprising choice of topics make history good reading. Try a chapter and you’ll find you’ve gone on to read more. Try this volume and you will find yourself looking for the next two.

"Burnett is a skillful storyteller and writer. Each of the individual stories stands on its own base, but taken together they present a mosaic of the real Florida of earlier years." LeRoy Collins, former Governor of Florida.

"Skillful writing, thorough research and a keen sense of what is of historical consequence. Whether discussing martyrs or murderers, tycoons or dolts, Burnett is thoughtful and fair-minded. What's more, he is also exceedingly entertaining." -- Tampa Tribune

Gene Burnett (1928-1991) was raised in Tampa and educated in Tallahassee at Florida State University. He served as a reporter and editor on a number of newspapers throughout the state -- ranging in size from a small country weekly to the Miami Herald -- as well as a freelance writer for many Florida magazines.
