THE COW HUNTERS: by TIM ROBINSON
St. Augustine, Florida – May 22, 2015:
Tim Robinson, author of the historical series A Tropical Frontier, has received the Best Fiction award for his fourth novel, The Cow Hunters, a tale of family, adventure and romance, set during pioneer days on the Florida Frontier.
About the book: The Florida Prairie, 1860, cattle country. War looms, but to the settlers living along a jungled, tropical creek, it all seems very far away. For Becky Hackensaw, there are much more pressing matters, such as providing an education for her six children, but where to find someone willing to brave an uninhabited wilderness overrun with wild animals, alligators, poisonous snakes, and bloodthirsty mosquitoes?
About the Author: Tim Robinson is a third generation Floridian, his grandfather having taken up a 100 acre homestead on Cape Canaveral in 1923. It was his grandfather and father who instilled in him a love for everything Florida. Tim grew up in West Palm Beach, halfway between saltwater Lake Worth and freshwater Lake Mangonia, where he spent his childhood and youth traipsing through the woods or biking over to the beach or taking in the wonders of Florida in some fashion or another. He presently lives with his wife, Connie, on a small farm in Indiantown, Florida.
Tim Robinson is the author of the comprehensive and critically acclaimed history, “A Tropical Frontier, Pioneers and Settlers of Southeast Florida.” His novels include “Tales of Old Florida”; “The Homesteaders”; “The Gladesman”; “The Cow Hunters”; and his newest release, “Time Rummers.”
