Located in the Juniper Prairie Wilderness of the Ocala National Forest of Florida, the Yearling trail visits several historic sites, once homesteads of the Long family.  Portions of the Long Family history are recounted in the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Yearling, by author Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings.

In 1872, Reuben Long followed an earlier settler, Patrick Smith, to begin establishing a homestead with his family.  Most of the Long descendants left the area by 1908 when the Ocala National Forest was designated.  Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings interviewed the remaining two families in 1933 for material for her book.  Those families then left the area in 1935.

This picture shows the view as it might have been seen from the homestead of Reuben and Sara Long.  The long-leaf pine, palmettos, oak and low rolling sandy hills stretch into the distance.

This is an overview of USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
