    "Just when you think you know Jacksonville..." As someone who has lived in Jacksonivlle all my life, I thought I knew my town. Boy, was I wrong! In this interesting and engaging work, I learned about a Titanic tie to Jacksonville, ice skating on the St. Johns and where I need to start searching for treasure. This is a must read for all those living in this great city on the St. Johns or those interested in the history of Florida
