Book Description:

A delightful new collection from the best-selling author of Seasons of Real Florida   Praise for Jeff Klinkenberg   "A skilled writer, he knows when to listen and when to nudge each short story along."--Publishers Weekly   "Klinkenberg uncovers the beauty and mystery of his home state."--Southern Living   "Reminds you of hopping in the back of a friend's truck for a ride. But this one takes you beyond the sunny skies and high-rises and into the past."--Miami Herald   "Klinkenberg explores what's left of the Florida that existed before it was invaded by Disney and developers. . . . His beautifully crafted sentences--this is not mere journalism--astutely evoke people and places."--Tampa Tribune and Times   "If Jeff Klinkenberg isn't careful," says Carl Hiaasen, "he might give journalism a good name."   Pilgrim in the Land of Alligators provides a welcome opportunity for readers to discover the character--and characters--of "real" Florida. In this compilation, drawn in part from his award-winning columns, Klinkenberg celebrates some of the Sunshine State's most distinctive personalities, including the original Coppertone girl and the actor who played the Creature from the Black Lagoon. Along the way, he travels to swamps, rickety piers, and Florida's only cook-your-own pancake restaurant.   Ranging from light and comical to wistful and nostalgic, Klinkenberg roams the state from panhandle to the keys, looking to answer the question, "What makes Florida Florida?" Pilgrim in the Land of Alligators will be a welcome addition to the bookshelves of longtime fans or readers new to his work.
