Osola: The Legend of the Mysterious Smoke of Wakulla, 1922
- An "epic poem" written by Tallahassee resident Reinette Long Hunt of the Grove. The poem tells the story of Osola, a boy born of a Wakulla water spirit and Indian Chief Wacissa. When Osola's dad goes to Pensacola, he asks Osola to keep a fire going so he will be able to find his way home using the smoke. Wanawachee, "on the hills above Wakulla," notices the smoke and asks her brother Chief Tallahassee to send his warriors to learn where the smoke is coming from. The warriors find Osola and Chief Tallahassee and Wanawachee travel to meet him. The legend is meant to explain the Wakulla Swamp Volcano.
