Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Angel City follows the course of the Teeters, a West Virginia family come to Florida to better their lives. What they find is degradation in a migrant labor camp near the Everglades. This novel served as an exposé, and did bring about some changes in conditions in these camps.

Synopsis:

Angel City is the story of the down-on-their-luck Teeters, a West Virginia family that leaves a poverty-stricken farm and arrives in Florida with dreams of running a roadside vegetable stand, going to the beach, and fishing in the ocean. But when they accept an offer of work from Silas Creedy—an offer that’s too good to refuse—they become the indentured servants of a heartless master who plunges them into a living hell.

            Smith’s exposé of the conditions in Florida’s migrant labor camps as recently as the 1970s is based on fact. Smith lived in the camps himself to render as true a depiction as possible, and the result, Angel City, served its purpose: to bring about change.

Synopsis:

Born and educated in Mississippi, Patrick Smith moved to Florida in 1966. In 1995 he was selected by the Southern Academy of Letters, Arts and Sciences for its highest literary award, the Order of the South. In 1999 he was inducted into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame, the state’s highest cultural honor. A Land Remembered has been honored with the Tebeau Award by the Florida Historical Society. Mr. Smith’s other books are also available from Pineapple Press: The Beginning, Forever Island, The River Is Home, and Allapattah. In addition, a DVD entitled Patrick Smith’s Florida: A Sense of Place highlights Mr. Smith’s writing and his travels and work around the state.
