The waters of Lake Hollingsworth in Lakeland, Florida, have provided much for the inhabitants of the area over the decades. From the early days of the first pioneers in the region through to the students of Florida Southern College, the lake has drawn people to its shores and become a focal point to the residents in the surrounding community. However, over time, the lake has been unable to sustain itself while keeping pace with the demands of those that depended on its waters and resources. Lake Hollingsworth is a collection of works by individuals associated with Florida Southern College?faculty, staff, students and alumni?concerned about the longevity and continued usefulness of the lake. Combining the disciplines of the Arts and Science, the works in this book are at once thought provoking and informative while offering the reader artistic views of the lake through many perspectives.
