Womacks Things My Teacher Did Tell Me is a contemporary history-almanac based on occurrences of the past seventy years in Jacksonville and the northeast area of Florida.

Amiably progressing through events, people, places, and topics, rather than using a conventional linear approach, it is, says the author, an effort to reflect what really happened, using a broad-brush approach looking beyond the perennials of tourism and real estate.Why Jacksonville? Its a major city with a fascinating, continuous written history dating from precolonial times beginning in 1562, when it was known as New France, and later as the Gateway to Florida. It is a city that has more national and international history than just about any other city in the country, says Womack- it also has all the characteristics of other great mid-sized American cities like Albany, Cincinnati, and Baltimore.Among the many topics profiled, all undergirded by the authors prodigious research, are: Jean Ribault and the French colonists- Jacksonville as rail center- trees and birds of Florida- Florida in the American Revolution- nuclear submarines- NASA- French wines- and much more.

Entertainingly discursive, chock full of interesting facts, Things My Teacher Did Tell Me is sui generis, and not to be missed.
