Bill Belleville on Florida



The writer from Sanford in Salvaging the Real Florida: Surely, if you’re in the business of storytelling -- that is, if you’re a writer or a politician -- then there’s likely no better stage than Florida. After all, we’re the home of mermaids and manatees and myths of salvation in the landscape. We’ve been making up stories here for thousands of years now, dating back to the paleo-memories of the first Floridians who followed herds of mastodons here because the spirits told them to.
