Back 10 years or more I was dating the master story teller and I was there with him during Hemmingway Days at the Pier House in Key West, during a story telling contest. He was so handsome as he recounted that day out on Woman Key. He commanded the audience with his style and gracefully picked words retelling Ballast Key. I love to read this book over and over because I can picture not only the moments seen in the pages, but I can also picture it through the eyes of the author. George's heart and his unique visuals are so clearly felt as you turn these pages. You will no doubt enjoy this book as you can escape into a moment of paradise.
