Exploring Wild South Florida Second Edition
By Susan D. Jewell
The southern tip of the Florida peninsula from Hobe Sound and Punta Gorda south to include the Keys and the Dry Tortugas is one of this countrys most talked-about natural areas. From the sawgrass marshes of the treasured Everglades to the coral reefs at the edge of the continent, here is your guide to finding and enjoying the natural areas of southern Florida. Covering federal, state, county, city, and private lands, this book offers information on how to get there; activities available to visitors such as hiking, canoeing, birdwatching, botanizing, and camping; the special wildlife you might encounter; and suggestions for making sure your visit is enjoyable and safe.
This new expanded edition includes over 40 new natural areas and covers Broward, Hendry, Lee, and Palm Beach Counties as well as Dade, Collier, and Monroe. With this edition the entire state of Florida is covered in the four volume Exploring Wild Florida set. The first edition of this book earned this praise from Marjory Stoneman Douglas: The extraordinary range, variety and color of the wild areas of south Florida have never been so vividly and completely described as in this book.
