The city of St. Augustine, Florida has the special designation as one of the oldest cities in North America, dating back well over four hundred years. Throughout St. Augustine's history, it has been home and host to an array of colorful and exceptional individuals, who have all helped to make the city what it is today. Legends and Tales: Anecdotal Histories of St. Augustine, Florida is a collection of oral histories by writer and St. Augustine resident Karen Harvey. As the reader will discover, these memories reveal that the history of St. Augustine is not always found in recorded facts, but rather in the hearts and minds of the local citizens who have made their home in this fascinating city. From stories about the early days of baseball and St. Augustine's strongest man, to the history of the area's African American population and the Civil Rights Movement, Legends and Tales offers insight from a unique, often-overlooked perspective.
