To be honest, I am having trouble wading through this volume. The writing is, in a word, florid. It's something of a slog. BUT, it is a classic, THE book on the Everglades, and it tells the story of the ways the Everglades were "tamed," as well as, until its publication date, the efforts that were made to save it. There are other books out there that tell the story more concisely and with less emotion (like Grunwald's "The Swamp"), but I'll finish "River of Grass" because I want to have read the first and most celebrated work on the subject.

A true classic. "The" definitive resource for anyone wanting to learn about the history of the Florida Everglades, written by perhaps its greatest advocate, journalist and Everglades advocate, Marjory Stoneman Dougas.

A ponderous read but worth it!!! Beautiful description and extremely well researched. Especially good choice for a Florida newbie.

This is a must read if you live or intend to visit the area of south Florida. It contains an excellent history of the area as well as a blistering defense of the need to preserve the ecosystem even though written more than a half century ago. . It made me want to read more about these subjects.

While the writing style is a little flowery, the content and the message are excellent and the afterword brings it up to date.
