Octavo, yellow cloth (hardcover), map illus. endpapers, 209 pp. Fine, in a Very Good dust jacket with edgewear. From dust jacket: The men and women who came to Florida for adventure and the settlers who stayed and gave names to towns and villages reflected the romance they found and the history they made. What her people have thought, believed, feared, hoped, and accomplished is preserved in the names of Florida's places. This book is a readable documentation of those names, including both the authenticated stories and the fancies and legends. More than just a catalogue or dictionary, it is the most complete study of Florida place-names yet to be published, from the earliest naming of the region of Florida by Juan Ponce de Leon to the latest creation of a new town by developers. Encompassing nearly five centuries of the history of Florida and its people, Places in the Sun presents a classification of names into commemorative, descriptive, and cultural categories.
