Steve Rajtar has written over 20 books, each dealing with history, particularly that of Florida. Among these works are Historic Photos of Florida Tourist Attractions, Historic Photos of Gainesville, Historic Photos of the University of Florida, and Historic Photos of Florida Ghost Towns, all available from Turner Publishing. Rajtar grew up near Cleveland, Ohio, and after graduating from the University of Central Florida and the University of Florida, entered the practice of law. He continues in that profession today. A love of the outdoors and a fascination with local history inspired one of his hobbies: leading historical tours in Florida's communities of today and yesteryear.
"A fun-filled look back at Central Florida attractions of yesteryear." --Orlando Sentinel, about Historic Photos of Florida Tourist Attractions "Historic Photos of Florida Ghost Towns captures forgotten places and ways of life through pictures of everything from plantations to picnics to prisoners. The lost locations are interesting, but just as compelling are the faces of those in the photos." --Florida Today "This rich book offers a glimpse back into historic locations . . . each image invites close examination and evokes feelings of wonder." --Scott Leon, Orlando Arts Magazine, about Historic Photos of Florida Tourist Attractions
