For all readers who read and loved Patrick Smith's "A Land Remembered," THE CRACKERS" The Legend of Jessie B. Tucker, will reignite your love of old Florida and it's fascinating legends and history. You've read about how the west was won. This book is about how the wild and uninhabited middle of Florida was tamed! THE CRACKERS: The Legend of Jessie B. Tucker is a story about four families who fled Georgia during the civil war and headed south. Although this story is a fictional novel based on historic facts and family legends about the events that happened to Michael's ancestor, Jessie B. Tucker, it is not just a history of occurrences during and after the civil war. It is about the lives of these white families from Georgia that came crashing together with a band of Creek Indians. The subsequent meeting of Jessie B. Tucker and Two Worlds, the ancient shaman and spiritual leader of the Creek band, sparked the merging of whites and Indians that changed the Tucker clan and the lifestyle and landscape of Central Florida. Last but not least, this story is about the love that held these white and Creek families together. Against all odds, these unlikely partners prevailed to create a new life and help to launch the second largest cattle drive in the Union, leaving a legacy that lives on many generations later. Join Michael in this adventure of old Florida and some of the wonderful characters that just might have lived in this exciting chapter of Florida's beginnings. The Crackers, The Legend of Jessie B. Tucker, is the first novel in an exciting series of the adventures of the Tucker's extended family.
