Synopsis: Landscape photographer Ian Adams teams up with environmentalist Clay Henderson to explore the many Floridas that rub shoulders and bump heads inside the borders of the Sunshine State. Two hundred and eighty color photographs, closely supported by Adams’s extended captions and Henderson’s main text, take the reader on a grand tour of Florida’s natural and cultural beauty spots: seashores, springs, forests, wetlands, prairies, gardens, groves, and man-made structures ranging from prehistoric shell mounds to the mansions and roadside attractions of the last century. Woven into the geographic fabric of the book are Henderson’s authoritative essays on Florida’s geology, hydrology, climate, wildlife, prehistory, history, population growth, immigration patterns, cracker culture, eccentric erections, notable naturalists, and battles royal among developers and environmentalists. Adams joins to every one of his photographs a deeply researched caption calculated to illumine and expand the main text.
About the Author: IAN ADAMS is the sole or principal photographer of thirteen books about nature, parks, and gardens in America, for which he has received numerous awards.
