P. C. Zick presents readers with an excellent book. She captures the sights, sounds, and smells of tribal living in the 1760s. At the same time, she demonstrates political savvy with her insight into Florida politics. Ms. Zick also deftly and sensitively addresses social issues, including the environment and homelessness, without ever hopping up on a soapbox and preaching at the readers.
***I received this book as part of a Blog Tour for the Release Tour***
This is a book that is both a great Suspense story and a trip into the history of the Native tribes of The Everglades, I really enjoyed this book.
“Native Lands” by P.C. Zick is a story with a descriptive background and interesting characters, both in the past and the present. This isn't a book you skim though, you will be engrossed as you follow both the Native Timucuans on their journey to find a place where they can survive the onslaught of the Spanish and English Colonization.
The other Storyline is set in present day which follows the lives of the a Journalist, Local fishermen, descendents of the Timucuans and Environmental Supporters and the residents of 2 areas in Florida, The plot is very clever in giving you 2 separate towns where Environmental issues are occurring and the corrupt towns officials and shady developers are doing their best to keep the Media and Environmentalists in the dark
There are secrets, plot twists, murder and more entwined in a gripping tale of Global Corporate Greed and the small town hero's who are trying to uncover what the heck is happening in the 'Glades'.
The way the Author has melded the Past and the Present in this book has been done so that the reader can read and learn without getting lost, the book certainly gives the reader pause for thought as we madly rush into the future, plowing into Nature with a disregard of what the destruction will hold for the future, without being preachy.
If you want a story that you will not want to put down, and when you have finished, you want to know more - then get this book.
The two camps are both at polar opposites of the spectrum. The developers wanting their own personal nature reserve at a cost for everyone else. They will stop at nothing and will resort to illegal methods to achieve their goals. The environmentalists wanting nature to be as nature should. Some of those on the side of nature believe that their opinion is the right opinion and the only opinion that should be held and will walk all over those who don't agree.
The past plays an important part in this story and through the inserts from the past we get see to the struggles for survival and the importance of the region. The past has an important impact on those involved in the present struggles.
For the most part I felt that this was a beautifully written story. The passion of the author came through in protecting the environment from those seeking to harness for money purposes. The belief the characters shared in wanting to stop this came across strongly. However, I did feel that when it came to the elements of romance, it did feel a little disjointed. This part is a small section of the story that it doesn't take away from the enjoyment of the story. The climax was exciting and had me on the edge of my seat. I would definitely read more by P.C. Zick in the future.
