Zora in Florida by Steve Glassman( )

9 editions published in 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two chapters are devoted to her first novel, Jonah's Gourd Vine, set almost entirely in Florida. Others discuss her work for the WPA in Florida; Tracks on the Road, her autobiography; and Mules and Men, her collection of Florida folklore gathered under the direction of anthropologist Franz Boas. The book also treats Hurston's lesser-known works such as the play Color Struck and Tell My Horse, her first-person account of fieldwork in Haiti. The legal troubles, professional eclipse, and personal opprobrium Hurston endured late in life are discussed in the final chapter
On the trail of the Maya explorer : tracing the epic journey of John Lloyd Stephens by Steve Glassman( )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 1,727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Steve Glassman retraces Stephens's route, visiting the same archaeological sites, towns, markets, and churches and meeting along the way the descendants of those people Stephens described from a mestizo en route to the cornfields to town elders welcoming the norteamericanos. Glassman compares his 20th-century experience with Stephens's 19th-century exploration, gazing in awe at the same monumental pyramids, eating similar foods, and avoiding the political clashes that still disrupt the governments and economies of the area."--Jacket
Florida studies : proceedings of the 2006 Annual Meeting of the Florida College English Association ; edited by Claudia Slate, Steve Glassman by Florida College English Association( )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Included in this volume are essays on every aspect of Florida literature and history by scholars from every part of the state who are employed in every kind of institution of higher learning. Of special interest are the studies of Florida literature in the 19th century and in the late 20th centuries, areas that are generally ignored in national journals. The papers on the contributions of African-American literary figures, such as Zora Hurston and James Weldon Johnson, are noteworthy. Of particular interest are the suggestions for teaching Florida studies in the classroom, which can be adapted for high school as well as college students."--Jacket
