Nearly five centuries have passed since Ponce de Leon claimed for the king of Spain the area that now contains Ocala, the seat of Marion County in North Central Florida. Located midway between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, Ocala was incorporated in 1885, when it was home to just 803 inhabitants, and has grown steadily since that time. At the turn of the twentieth century, the city covered four square miles and had a population of 3,380, making Ocala the seventh largest town in Florida. From its Native American heritage, which includes important episodes in the life of Seminole leader Osceola, to its natural beauty featured in such places as the Ocala National Forest and the world-famous Silver Springs, Ocala has had a rich and fascinating past. Widely known today as champion thoroughbred horse country, Ocala and its environs also boast neighborhoods of well-preserved Victorian homes and other historic structures, a thriving business community, and a diverse populace that is dedicated to the constant improvement of this singular city. In 1995, Ocala was honored with the designation of "All America City" by the National Civic League. Paying tribute to this one-of-a-kind city, its residents--both past and present--and the story it has to tell, this volume of more than 200 vintage images showcases Ocala's rich historical legacy and the men and women who made it all possible.

North from Ocala

Written by Barbara Lindner Wood, this is an autobiography which reads like an adventure novel. The opening pages tell Barbara's story in Ocala, Florida as an aviatrix and meteorologist just before America enters World War II. She meets her husband, Ben, at Ocala airport's army pilot training school. They marry in Texas, move with their first son to Washington DC and Ben enters the US Foreign Service. This new phase of her life includes stints in The Philippines, Belgium, Vietnam, Cambodia, and London. Her marriage fails and as a lively divorcee in the tumultuous Sixties, Barbara oscillates between Paris, Washington DC and the Mediterranean island of Sardinia. Camping in the back of her customized white Land Rover (illustrated on the book cover), she gallivants all over Europe and Turkey. By the 1980s she is back in the US on a garlic farm she starts in Virginia. During all of these years she encounters celebrities such as Garbo, Nureyev, Henry Moore, Johnny Weismuller, Joe Frazier, Jack and Jackie Kennedy - to mention just a few. Barbara says: "I was fortunate to be often in the right place at the right time. As a free spirit I traveled the world, having tremendous fun."
