In Crackers Crumbs, writer Gib Bergquist (1924-2006) reveals a wealth of insight into life as it
was lived in Florida during the Great Depression and throws in a few razor-edged
observations about todays world.
The following links represent only a small sampling of the
delightful Cracker tales youll find in Crackers Crumbs, a collection
of tales from our good friend, Gib, who wrote the stories for his newspaper columns during
a period of several years serving as a weekly columnist for the Anna Maria Islander.
I'm pleased and proud to have served as editor for Gibs
original newspaper columns and for his book, and to have been his
friend. Although he is now gone from our daily lives, he still lives in
the hearts of those who loved him.
