9780312953980: The Man Who Invented Florida: A Doc Ford Novel (Doc Ford Novels)

When solitary marine biologist Doc Ford focused his telescope on the woman in the white boat, he didn't know his life was about to be capsized: that his conniving uncle Tucker Gatrell would discover the Fountain of Youth, that The National Enquirer would write about it, and that the law would beat down his door in search of three missing men.

But Doc Ford is about to find these things out-- the hard way. Because in the shadowy world of Southwest Florida, where gators yawn, cattle craze, and Indian bones are buried, mysteries great and small have found the man to solve them...in The Man Who Invented Florida by bestselling author Randy Wayne White.

About the Author:

Randy Wayne White, author of the Doc Ford novels, is a columnist for Outside Magazine, the host of "On the Water," a PBS television series, and a veteran Sanibel Island fishing guide. He lives with his family in Ft. Myers, Florida.

From AudioFile:

Doc Ford, a marine biologist in rural Mango, Florida, is asked to rein in his Uncle Tucker, who is notorious for telling one big lie after another. Ford also needs to find three government scientists who have gone missing. Dick Hill has the perfect droll tone for this comic mystery. Tucker claims to have found a sulfur spring in the Everglades that reverses aging. Could it be the fountain of youth, or is it just stinky water? The story abounds with details on the ecology of the Everglades, the chemistry of the sulfur spring, and the history of the Calusa Indians. As Ford attempts to solve the mystery and disentangle himself from family, Hill keeps all the balls in the air for listeners. M.B.K. AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
