There are books written about Florida history. I plan from time to time to mention some of them. This week, I want to introduce you to what I call a “coffee table” book, “Englewood Lives” by Diana Harris. Diana writes a history column for this newspaper. I asked her what her motivation was for writing the book.
She replied, “My book is based on the oral history I have been taking for over 25 years from longtime area residents — many, sons and daughters of original pioneers. All local residents, they lived a part of Englewood history. The book is an account of the way of life in earlier days, how Englewood-area lives were lived, thus the title. These many people I have interviewed over the years are to be thanked because, without them, there would be no stories of early Englewood.
