CitrusLAND: Curse of
Now in Second Edition!
A HISTORY told through
Robert B. F. ROPER was eight years old in April, 1861, when he
rode with his father to ORLANDO for the first time. The boy’s childhood
memories, when matched to Orange County’s official documents, provide
intriguing clues to learning of the earliest days of the remote four acre
Village of Orlando. His recollections also opens doors to discovering secrets
of a vast central Florida wilderness.
CitrusLAND: Curse of Florida’s Paradise,
like each and every Cronin book, tells of real-life people struggling against difficult
true-life events. Challenges pioneers faced in central Florida were often the challenge of their
life, challenges that all too often cost them their life. Some believed central
Florida was cursed (hence, the cover!).
