    Real Insight From A Florida Insider.

    Most books of this nature reflect a rose-colored tone usually with a hidden marketing campaign or sales pitch between the lines. This book is different, in a good way. The author provides a realistic presentation of Florida living. Bugs and all. Romantic ideals are balanced with true insight.I have vacationed in Florida for many years and have some direct experience with the beautiful side of Florida (palm trees, porpoises, gulf views) and the ugly side (seedy transients, obscene traffic, overcrowding). The author drives home the concept that vacationing and living there are two different worlds. Sometimes the author voices a personal opinion that may be unpopular or politically incorrect. It's these opinions sprinkled throughout that make this book better. It also helps people like me, who are considering a move to Florida, make more informed choices.My only complaint is that the book didn't contain enough information.

    Some good info with an overall negative bias and sloppy execution

    A quick pass by a professional editor would improve this book greatly and enhance the author's credibility. There are some real grammatical and stylistic howlers here.That said, I read with fascination Stack's vivid portrayal of the miseries of a Florida summer that send many packing back north, often at a huge loss. Alligators in your swimming pool. Snakes crawling into your pool cage to get the geckos. Heatstroke-inducing temperatures and humidity if you dare to venture outside at midday,making neighborhoods into ghost towns. Hurricane evacuations uprooting you and forcing you to join an endless exodus of stopped traffic (woe to you if you need gas; every station along the way will be out, and forget about a place to stay if you haven't made a reservation long before evacuating). Power outages in the "lightning capital of the world." Giant cockroaches.

    Totally Bamboo

    Fun shape for quality board!

    0 5/5 LoLo - See all my reviews This review is from: Totally Bamboo Cutting and Serving Board, North Carolina State (Kitchen) I have a few standard boards from this company and I love them. Great quality and they last forever (you shold oil them occasionally though). I love the State shapes! I ordered California and was surprised at the size and functionality. I had planned on just giving it as a gift to be put out as decoration but you can do fun things with it. I got creative and put the board together with wine, cheese and nuts and brought it as a host gift. It was a total hit! She used it to serve the cheese and other appetizers The board itself look and feels really expensive and the shape is so fun. I would love to get more for Christmas gifts (mom, don't look) but Amazon seems to be out of stock on a lot of states. I think it would be really fun to create a theme gift basket around the State. Absolutely recommend. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 8, 2013

    Bamboo Cutting Board Massachusetts State

    0 5/5 lcarr "01034" - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Totally Bamboo Cutting and Serving Board, Massachusetts State (Kitchen) I purchased this for a gift for a dignitary from Iceland. I thought it would be easy to slip into their luggage going back. This quality of this board far exceeded my expectations. It was beautifully made and more sturdy that I had thought it would be. I was concerned that the "cape cod" part might break off but I am sure that even under rigorous use this would not be an issue. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 13, 2014

    Nicely made and a good hostess gift

    0 4/5 patricia nisler - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Totally Bamboo Cutting and Serving Board, Virginia State (Kitchen) Bamboo cutting boards are great, and in visiting a relative in VA, I used this as an appropriate hostess gift, stopping off at the supermarket to buy some nice cheeses first. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 18, 2014
    Florida shaped bamboo cutting and serving board, measures 13.5 x 12.25-inch
    Can be used as a cutting or bar board, cheese tray or simply a conversation piece; to hang on wall use rustic hanging loop
    Wash by hand with warm water; occasionally use Totally Bamboo's revitalizing oil to extend life and beauty of board
    Board made of Moso Bamboo, harvested at the optimum age of 5 years
    State cutting boards are ideal for both indoor and outdoor entertaining; boards make a great gift for anyone loyal to their homeland

    A Wonderful Historical Background Collection

    0 4/5 Dayle Lewandowski (Oldsmar, FL United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Tales of Old Florida (Hardcover) This is a great collection of magazine articles documenting trips and moves to Florida dating from the late 1800's to the early 1900's. I found it fascinating reading about the wilderness this state was only a century ago. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 6, 2000

    Splendid!

    As the description says, this is a collection of newspaper and magazine articles that illustrate life in Southern Florida in the late 1800s and the early 1900s. The quality of writing in most of these articles is amazing. Most read like a Hemingway short story (without the usually grim endings, however) full of lush imagery and wonderful tales of fishing, sailing, and hiking through the wilderness.There are stories that talk of Native Americans, old towns, near-deadly storms, and of relaxing rides down the Indian River. Having lived in Florida quite a few years ago this book took me back to the natural world that Florida was first known for (before Disney World and the night-life of Miami).Also, the book is peppered with wonderful illustrations (mostly drawings but some photographs) that add more life to the book.I totally recommend this book to anyone even remotely interested in Florida.5/5Also recommended:... 5/5 Alexander (Va, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
