About the Author

James Valentine is an environmental filmmaker, consultant, writer, poet, speaker, and scuba diver. Valentine is president of the Quest Foundation, which works toward nature preservation and environmental education through the arts and sciences. He coordinates his photographic work with leading environmental groups and cultural organizations throughout the world. Florida Magnificent Wilderness, recipient of a Governor’s Environmental Education Award, is his ninth major book depicting Southern areas. He is collaborating with Bruce Means on a documentary film and book to help preserve one of the world’s last pristine wildernesses, the Guiana Shield of South America.

Born in California and raised in Alaska, Bruce Means fell in love with Florida after coming in 1960 to attend college at Florida State University. He completed his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees studying the ecology of the Florida panhandle. He has been an adjunct professor in the FSU Biological Science Department since 1976, and has taught courses on the ecology of Florida since 1980, culminating in Priceless Florida: Natural Ecosystems and Native Species, a book he coauthored with Ellie Whitney and Anne Rudloe. He and colleagues founded the Coastal Plains Institute and Land Conservancy in 1984, where he is presently president and executive director.

This book has a lot of wonderful pictures. It is not really good for canoeing or shall I say planning for canoeing or other boating adventures.

This is an amazing book at a give-away price...sold elsewhere at full retail. As a native Floridian with much background in the subject and awareness of the best photographers work, I still find this book a terrific gift as new hard-cover at under $4.00! The photos are exceptional.

Lovely photography. I live in Florida and have traveled it from coast to coast, but I haven't seen many of the things Valentine shows in his book. Guess I need to explore a little deeper!
