The works of literature within the Florida Heritage Collection are some of the most unique pieces of the collection. These beautiful examples of writing illustrate the talent of Florida authors. There are works of poetry, children's stories, and writings about Florida and its environs. Fictional works, although they often contain a great deal of historical license, also help us to understand the social and cultural climate of a time. Fiction written about Florida has included such themes as shipwrecks, poetry, life in the Everglades, and similar themes that reflect the rich tableau of the State’s history. Some examples of the works in this section are, Al Alligator and how he learned to play the banjo, Canoemates: a story of the Florida Reef and Everglades, and Chasco, queen of the Calusas.
