Summary
In this collection of narrative essays, nature writer Belleville explores the swamps, beaches, and jungles of Florida, investigates a shipwreck and a historical riverboat town, and searches for native wildlife such as the black bear and the cave-dwelling shrimp. Although the essays incorporate information gleaned from journalistic research, they do not attempt to be objective; instead, they are nonfiction vignettes highlighting conservation topics, pondering spiritual issues, and reflecting on the ideas of nature writers of the past and present. The book includes b&w nature photos and personal photos, plus historical illustrations. Belleville has written and produced environmental documentaries for PBS and NPR.
