Suwannee River Treasures
by Trenda Gordon
(Chiefland, Florida, USA)
Two young people, Allie and PJ, grow up along the Suwannee River stumbling from one mischievous set of predicaments to the next. Falling snakes, jumping fish, mysterious swamp monsters, and fast dune buggies bring fun and adventure to this family friendly book.
A deeper look… Suwannee River Treasures is set in the early 1970’s. Three generations of a strong southern family living in the heart of the Suwannee River Basin are safely sheltered from much of the social upheaval sweeping the country and particularly the south. They remain strong as they carve out their living from the rich farmlands, cypress swamps, and dark waters. Hunting, fishing, and gathering from nature are not primarily for sport along the Suwannee River— they are a way of life.
All ages will enjoy Trenda Gordon’s reflective stories and treasures revisiting a time long past— each story is rich in scenic details bringing you beautiful snapshots of Florida’s rich heritage.
