The Book of the EvergladesBook - 2002
With all the spice of southern storytelling, The Book of the Everglades brings to light the often outlandish results of humankind's attempts to control and redesign nature. Journalists, essayists, poets, and educators tell how the natural plumbing of the Everglades has been rerouted not only by the Army Corps of Engineers but by sugar planters, politicians, and growth. Contributing writers include Carl Hiassen, Al Burt, Archie Carr, and Julie Hauserman.
