Patrick D. Smith’s 1984 novel “A Land Remembered” is one of the most popular books about Florida ever written.
The beloved Merritt Island author was born October 8, 1927, and died January 26, 2014. He would have been 88 this week.
Most popular novels have a year or so of commercial success, perhaps getting another boost when a paperback version comes out. Smith’s “A Land Remembered” has been a bestseller in Florida since it was first published.
