MK Rawlings was a very American woman. Her books are well worth reading telling of another time in Florida and America. A well as her fiction, the story of her life is equally interesting. The following is a link to her homestead/statepark

Welcome to Florida State Parks

I think there's a name confusion. MK Rawlings (American) wrote The Yearling, and JK Rowling (British) wrote the Harry Potter series.

Thanks Norm. That clears it up. I'll have to read the book and visit the park. We visited a couple State Parks S.E. of St Pete when we were there last April. They seem to have some really nice ones. We were impressed.

I see now one author is spelled Rawlings and one is Rowling.

Florida has great state parks and lots of them. A couple you might like are Homosassa Springs State Park, no camping there but nearby Crystal River does have camping. As well there are a number of county parks, Fort Desoto not far from St Pete is a county park that is a whole island accessible by bridge.

Norm, you're the third person to recommend Fort DeSota. We will be sure to visit there this winter. I'll look up Homosassa Springs SP as well.

To prevent a total hijack of this thread, I want to check out your bumper mounted clothes line this winter in FL. Hehe

Hate to get off track too but we love her stuff. Have you seen her cookbook and also the movie Cross Creek? Would love to visit the homestead one day. If you are interested in the area 'A Land Remembered' by Patrick Smith is an entertaining read.

I have one similar to Paul's. Mine was the first one made. Later versions were changed. The cost to make them was to much. They would have to sell for $200.00 and not many people would fork over that much. They were handmade in the USA by a Veteran.
