A Land Remem­bered Stu­dent Edition

A Land Remem­bered has become Florida’s favorite novel. The Stu­dent Edi­tion in two vol­umes makes this rich, rugged story of the Amer­i­can pio­neer spirit more acces­si­ble to young read­ers. In the book, Patrick Smith tells of three gen­er­a­tions of the MacIveys, a Florida fam­ily bat­tling the hard­ships of the fron­tier. The story opens in 1858, when Tobias and Emma MacIvey arrive in the Florida wilder­ness with their son, Zech, to start a new life, and ends in 1968 with Solomon MacIvey, who real­izes that his wealth has not been worth the cost to the land. Between is a sweep­ing story rich in Florida his­tory with a cast of mem­o­rable char­ac­ters bat­tling wild ani­mals, rustlers, Con­fed­er­ate desert­ers, mos­qui­toes, star­va­tion, hur­ri­canes, and freezes to carve a king­dom out of the Florida swamp.

In VOLUME 1, meet young Zech MacIvey, who learns to ride like the wind through the Florida scrub on Ish­mael, his marsh­tackie horse, with his dogs, Nip and Tuck, at his side. His par­ents, Tobias and Emma, scratch a liv­ing from the land, gath­er­ing wild cows from the swamp and herd­ing them across the state to mar­ket. Zech learns the ways of the land from the Semi­noles, with whom his life becomes entwined as he grows into manhood.

In VOLUME 2, with the birth of Zech and Glenda’s son, Solomon, a new gen­er­a­tion of MacIveys learns to ride horses, drive cat­tle, and teach rustlers a thing or two. Sol and his fam­ily earn more and more gold dou­bloons from cat­tle sales, as well as dol­lars from their orange groves. The invest it in buy­ing land, once free to all, now owned and fenced and increas­ingly pop­u­lated, until it becomes just “a land remembered.”

Standard Version of A Land Remembered, by Patrick D. Smith

Suit­able For Mature Students

We rec­om­mend the stu­dent ver­sion for grades up through 6, but younger stu­dents often read the stan­dard edi­tion and love it. Some of the scenes have been rewrit­ten for younger read­ers, but even the stan­dard ver­sion is often appro­pri­ate. It depends on the sen­si­tiv­ity of the audience.

For any stu­dent at 7th or 8th grade and above we rec­om­mend the stan­dard edi­tion, and of course that is the ver­sion rec­om­mended for all adults.

Patrick Smith’s son, Rick (Patrick, Jr.) an award-winning film­maker liv­ing in Cal­i­for­nia, shot and edited this lov­ing trib­ute to his father, with help from his wife, Kim, her­self a pro­fes­sional edi­tor and producer.

Butch Har­ri­son, Florida Cracker Sto­ry­teller DVD

This DVD con­tains 58-minutes of sto­ries in three chap­ters. The first sec­tion, filmed at a Florida pio­neer home­stead at Florida Cap­i­tal State Park in Perry, Florida, pro­vides a rich intro­duc­tion to early set­tler life. An authen­tic set­tler house and out­build­ings pro­vide the per­fect back­ground as Butch demon­strates how and why set­tlers built the typ­i­cal “Cracker House,” what they ate and how they lived. This is as close as you’ll come to tak­ing your stu­dents on a real field trip to a Florida pio­neer settlement.

They’ll learn about the econ­omy of trad­ing skins and furs instead of money, which was quite com­mon dur­ing this time. You’ll also get a tour of a sugar cane mill.

In the sec­ond sec­tion, Butch enter­tains us with true tales of his life as a guide and glades­man in the Florida Ever­glades. These are col­or­ful sto­ries of frogs, fish and alli­ga­tors in the world that was Butch’s play­ground, a world that is increas­ingly threat­ened today.

This is a unique pro­gram that is sure to be a hit with stu­dents of all ages.

Shown below is a short sam­ple of from the DVD, “Butch Har­ri­son, Florida Cracker Storyteller.”

Florida Crack­ers: the Cat­tle­men and Cow­boys of Florida

Here is a movie made with an equal amount of love and respect for a van­ish­ing lifestyle. I’m talk­ing about Florida Crack­ers: the Cat­tle­men and Cow­boys of Florida.

This story starts back to 1521, when Span­ish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon landed in what is now Florida and intro­duced the first cat­tle and horses into North Amer­ica. Some descen­dants of these early pio­neer­ing fam­i­lies still play a major role in Florida’s cat­tle indus­try to this day, work­ing the land and rais­ing the cat­tle that their fam­i­lies have owned for generations.

The film is about real-life, work­ing cow­boys in Florida: their his­tory, their cul­ture, and the uncer­tain future they face as they strive to pre­serve their way of life in a fast-paced mod­ern world.
