For this installment of our quarterly (Tri-annual?) Book Club, we will be tackling Kent Russell's "In the Land of Good Living: A Journey to the Heart of Florida." And why not? Florida is a state that we have been told for decades is about turn blue because of demographics. And yet, it remains a bastion of red. The book has been described as "a wickedly smart, funny, and irresistibly off-kilter account of an improbable thousand-mile journey on foot into the heart of modern Florida, the state that Russell calls America Concentrate."
