From the Timucua to Disney, emeritus professor Gannon packs 12,000 years of history into an entertaining 40-minute cruise through Florida’s centuries. Audio CD (narrated by Michael Gannon) and print combination format in keepsake edition.
Illustrated with maps and rare old sketches and photographs, The Cross in the Sand is as exciting and easy to read as a novel. The book’s literary grace is matched by its historical authenticity, because Gannon has used all available manuscripts as well as the best secondary sources of this and past centuries.
