This book is an extraordinary story of my Grandfather, William Henry Mayo. Born in the rugged sand hills of the Florida panhandle in the late 1800s, we follow his life through unbelievable hardships. He and his family traveled the State of early Florida following jobs in railroads, lumber companies, and even moonshining to provide the necessities for his family. They experienced the 1926 and 1928 hurricanes in Okeechobee. Thousands were killed in these storms. Their survival was a miracle. At last, with the help of his brother, he established a farm in Sumter county Florida, east of Wildwood. The farm was surrounded by a cattleman who wanted the farm for his cattle. This opened up a new set of problems.
