Where Dolphins Fly

A lone crypt inscribed “Sacred to the Memory, Charles Dummett 1844-1860” rests in the middle of a shady street in New Smyrna. The quiet beachside neighborhood is the former site of his father’s riverfront plantation; Mount Pleasant. The cracked, marble-topped vault holds a family story of pioneer grit and courage in wild and dangerous jungles of territorial Florida; the chaotic settlement of New Smyrna through grisly Seminole Wars, and a divisive, bloody Civil War. Based on the life of Yale educated Douglas Dummett, originator of the Indian River citrus strain; he was a judge, Territorial and State Representative, and leader of the mounted militia...‘The Moskito Roarers’. Set within an historical timeline in the age of Osceola, this is a local story of the Old South; triumph and loss, slavery and survival...and family secrets of forbidden love. This is where it happened, on this white sand tropical island paradise of New Smyrna Beach, Florida...where dolphins fly!
