    1. This is the first book in Harvey Oyer's trilogy of children's books about Florida history. Wonderfully told and historically accurate, this book is about Oyer's great-great grandfather, Charlie Pierce, who journeyed with his parents from Chicago to settle in the Florida, or what was then known as "the American jungle." And, what a jungle it was! Thank you Mr. Oyer for bringing this wonderful era of history alive for my kids.

    2. Having been raised in Florida, I thought it was important to read this book and to read it to my kids. Although I'll be honest and say that I did not think it would be any good, but I'm glad I was wrong. Harvey is actually a talented storyteller and the story is so intriguing. I actually never wanted to stop reading it. And all of the Florida history facts thrown in are a lot of fun.
