Rob Smith Jr shares "The History of Florida" and the facts behind being a Florida Taxpayer. What are Floridians really paying for?

For nearly 30 years, Rob Smith, Jr. has delighted audiences with his insightful caricatures, editorial cartoons, and colorful illustrations. As a popular entertainer, he brings a high-energy WOW! to your event, drawing caricatures with blazing speed and accuracy while a crowd gathers to laugh at the next punch line.

Rob-s new book "The History of Florida" is a great way to teach children about Florida. It is excellent for home schooling.

Written records about life in Florida began with the arrival of the Spanish explorer and adventurer Juan Ponce de León in 1513. Sometime between April 2 and April 8, Ponce de León waded ashore on the northeast coast of Florida, possibly near present-day St. Augustine. He called the area la Florida, in honor of Pascua florida ("feast of the flowers"), Spain's Eastertime celebration.

No great treasure troves awaited the Spanish conquistadores who explored Florida. However, their stories helped inform Europeans about Florida and its relationship to Cuba, Mexico, and Central and South America, from which Spain regularly shipped gold, silver, and other products.
