This much-anticipated second volume of oral histories by local author Karen Harvey continues to uncover the multilayered history of St. Augustine, Florida. These historical vignettes, which were originally published in the St. Augustine Record, will delight and entertain residents and visitors alike. Written in a conversational style that is accessible and easy-going, Harvey brings the reader face to face with some of St. Augustine's most interesting characters. The resulting narrative allows the storytellers to paint a picture of the "oldest city" that is rarely found in other written histories. Including sections about the history of the African American community in St. Augustine and accounts from the city's legendary "Mr. St. Johns County" Dan Mickler, Legends and Tales, Volume II continues to open doors to St. Augustine's vast history.
