September

Dessie Prescott Smith was a hard-living Florida outdoorswoman. She loved hunting, fishing and drinking white lightning, writes Jeff Klinkenberg. But she also had a soft spot in her heart for her neighbor and soon to be friend, author Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. Now Dessie's old house on the Withlacoochee, so rich with the flavor of Florida, is deteriorating and might soon be sold. Take a tour through this home as it takes you back to an unspoiled and wild Sunshine State.
