In his own words — and those of his father

-A A +A
By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

“You won’t find the name of MacIvey in history books,” is, most likely, a true statement, but it’s certain the man who wrote those words is deserving of being remembered.
Celebrated Floridian Patrick D. Smith, author of seven novels, died just a few short weeks ago at the age of 87. He is most noted for his work “A land Remembered,” a story of the lives of Florida pioneers, such as the fictionalized MacIvey family, in the mid-1800s. Smith, through the years, had been nominated several times for the Pulitzer Prize and even once for the Nobel Prize for Literature. He received countless other awards and nominations before his death, including the distinction as the “Greatest Living Floridian,” contributing “the most to Florida in recent history.”
