A glimpse into northwestern Florida during the 1960's. There were some interesting observations interspersed with quite a lot of detail, which made this book difficult for me to read. I enjoyed reading about towns that I know well, and learning what they were like and how they have or haven't really changed. But there was a lot of information and description that I found unnecessary. A mildly interesting read for someone who knows and loves this part of Florida.
