Few places in America evoke the mystery and fascination of the Everglades, Big Cypress, the Ten Thousand Islands, and the Florida Keys. Gradually, many of the unique and fragile natural wonders of these subtropical areas are being revealed, yet very little is known about the region's colorful history Here, in informative, lively stories accompanied by rare "just the right" photographs, Stuart McIver gives insight into some of the people, places and events that have left their imprint on the Everglades area.
Meet heroes and hermits, dreamers and doers, unconquered Seminoles and Miccosukees, and a cast of colorful characters. Visit long forgotten homes, hotels and historic sites in Paradise Key, Flamingo, Big Cypress, Chokoloskee Island and Key West. Relive the eras of steamboating and dredging in the Everglades, the building of the Tamiami Trail, the saving of Corkscrew Swamp and the building of the Overseas Railroad.
Many of the stories contained in this book have previously appeared in the author's Glimpses of South Florida History. Here, the best of the stories pertaining to the Everglades region have been selected and new stories and photographs have been added.
