The Early People of Florida
Written and Illustrated by Eva Deutsch Costabel

This book for young readers tells the fascinating history of "La Florida" in words and brilliant paintings. It is a special look at a part of the United States that has its own unique and colorful past. Florida's history is very different from that of the thirteen states to its north. The first Europeans to explore Florida were from the Spanish colonies on the Caribbean Islands. These first Spaniards came into conflict with the Calusa, the Tequesta, the Timucua, and the Apalache, Florida's native peoples.

The Pennsylvania Dutch, Craftsmen and Farmers
Written and Illustrated by Eva Deutsch Costabel

Eva Costabel introduces the young reader to the life of a typical Pennsylvania Dutch farming family of the colony and to the many crafts produced by the German settlers there, including quilting, pottery making, woodworking and much more. The first German speaking colonists arrived in the New World to settle in William Penn's new colony of Pennsylvania. Many of them, such as Quakers, the Mennonites, the Moravians, and the Amish, were fleeing religious persecution, and Pennsylvania offered religious freedom.

Your book on The Pennsylvania Dutch
is very appealing especially since my husband and I often visited the area yearly when living in New Jersey. The people even now live very simplistic, especially those in the Lancaster area. Their food is delicious. Good luck on your book.
