Cracker Times and Pioneer Lives brings together the reminiscences of two pioneers who came of age in antebellum Florida's Columbia County and the nearby Suwannee River Valley. Though they held markedly different positions in society, the two shared the adventure, thrill, hardship, and tragedy that characterized Florida's pioneer era. With sensitivity, poignancy, and humor, George Gillett Keen and Sarah Pamela Williams record anecdotes and memories that touch upon important themes of frontier life and reveal the remarkable diversity of Florida's settlers.

"A must-own - a must-read - book. It opens a wide window to the nineteenth-century Florida frontier that was sometimes treacherous, sometimes peaceful, but always action-packed....What a treasure." - Samuel Proctor, University of Florida; "A meticulously researched body of work that will serve as an invaluable source of information for historians for decades to come." - Florida Historical Quarterly
