Man in the Everglades
2000 Years of Human History in the Everglades National Park

by Charlton W. Tebeau

Historian Tebeau's account of Man in the Everglades is based upon historical reconstruction from both aboriginal Indian remains within Everglades Park, and the records and memories of early white settlers and their descendants. In 1967 Tebeau wrote, "Over the past fifteen years I have visited these people, shared at least vicariously many of their experiences, and learned to understand their appreciation of what their sometimes precarious lives meant to them."

Man in the Everglades discusses the Glades Indian tribes, Indian removal, white settlements and activities within the everglades, to the conception and realization of the idea of preserving the Florida wilderness in today's Everglades National Park.

This is an important work in the trail of today's Everglades Restoration issues, considering that as early as 1967 Tebeau pointed out, " People in Florida as elsewhere in the nation will be forced again and again to make far-reaching decisions between conflicting interests and values."
