Florida history with a spoonful of mystery


Fly-in Fox Tales


They say, "Home is where your heart is."

But what happens if you lose your home?

Wildfires force Rico to live with his aunt at the Spruce Creek Fly-In, a luxury community filled with millionaires and their private airplanes. Kit, the wild fox, has escaped there, too.

How will they survive in their new world? And who is that mysterious man who paddles his canoe down the dark waterway each afternoon?
