When Henry A. DeLand sat down to plan a town in the summer of 1876, he envisioned a place that would become "a religious, educational, business, and social center"--the Athens of Florida. He made his dream a reality by investing his livelihood in the town that would be named for him. DeLand donated the land for the first municipal building that doubled as a church and school and funded the school that would become Stetson University. Ever since, the city of DeLand has had an interesting and rich history. Much of this unique history has been captured and preserved in postcards published throughout the past hundred-plus years.

Margaret Deland Writing toward Insight

Margaret Deland Writing toward Insight

Then Mr. Brooks and Lorin went to the little train station and traveled back to
Boston. Was it possible, Margaret wondered, that the mosquitos did not bother Mr
. Brooks as they had her earlier guests? He seemed so cheerful after his stay.

A hundred years ago, Margaret Deland was a top American author on par with Mark Twain, William Dean Howells, or Thomas Hardy. She rubbed elbows with presidents and became a prominent member of Boston Society. But she is also a study in contradictions and almost unknown today. This Civil War era orphan raised by old school Presbyterians became an independent, self-made woman during Victorian times. She captures the struggles of nineteenth century women in her novels; she took unwed mothers into her home but declined to join the suffragette movement. Her literary success did not deter her from assisting soldiers in Europe during World War I or mingling with persons of very diverse backgrounds and faiths. But beneath an interesting life and career is a deep study and questioning of beliefs. A quest for objective confirmation of an afterlife—especially after the death of her beloved husband Lorin—led her into contact with mediums, psychical research and spiritualism. This in-depth and very personal biography reveals how relevant Margaret’s life, work, and ultimate insights are to our own.

Traces the development of Florida railroads, from the first, tentative lines in the 1830s, through the boom of the 1880s, to the maturity of the railroad system in the 1920s. This title examines the decline of the industry, as the automobile rose to prominence in American culture and lines were abandoned or sold for hiking trails and green spaces.
