Gift Shop Feature of the Month
The Volusian by John W. Turner. This interesting book documents the activities of Horatio S. Dexter - frontier diplomat and Indian trader in the early days of Florida. Dexter had a plantation called "Volusia" near what is now DeLeon Springs, and a large lake is named for him (Lake Dexter). John Turner, a student of Florida history, especially the origin of how Volusia County got its name, worked tirelessly for several years to gather this history. He brings these stories of the early days to life and has included a number of maps and letters. Turner $17.50.
