Dr. James C. Clark joined the history faculty at the University of Central Florida in 1987. He is the author of six books and has written for The Washington Post, Washington Star, Washington Monthly, The Nation, and Miami Herald. Pineapple Anthology of Florida Writers is the first in a series of writings about Florida, fiction and nonfiction, by legendary writers who have come to Florida—some to live, others to escape the winters, and some just passing through. Ernest Hemingway railed against a government he believed was responsible for the World War I veterans who died in the 1935 hurricane while they labored to build a railroad to the Keys. Audubon wasn't just the most famous painter of birds; he also wrote stories during his travels. Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, author of The Yearling, wrote about what she knew best: the Crackers she met and befriended during the years she lived at Cross Creek.
