I never thought that I would spend Valentine's Day reading a nature guide but Charles Sobczak's monumental achievement, LIVING SANIBEL, is much more than a guide-it is a love poiem to our islands, a Valentine to Sanibel and Captiva. From the moment I began my journey through its pages, I was overwhelmed by the passionate sense of mission that drove Sobczak to catalogue and describe in reverential prose the most comprehensive record of Sanibel's history, flora and fauna ever compiled. LIVING SANIBEL is the first nature book I could not stop reading. Sanibel Author Joe Pacheco --The Islander of Sanibel and Captiva<br /><br />A thorough, well-researched, unique, yet sensitve personal accounting of birds, animals, insects and plants: our native island abundance. Priscilla Friedersdorf --The Island Sun<br /><br />LIVING SANIBEL reminds us once again of the vast natural treasures and biodiversity so well preserved on Sanibel, and will remain the definitive treatise on the islands' natural history and environment for years to come. --Dr. Jose Leal, Curator of the Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum
A guide book this thorough, detailed, attractive and accessible is bound to promote curiosity, seducing readers into exciting first-hand experiences. As readers take their own personal jouneys through Sanbiel and Captiva, relishing their growing familiarity with the astonishing environment, they will share the joy that Mr. Sobczak felt in writing this book. It is, most of all, a guidbook for celebrating (and promoting) one delicious slice of the naturual world. --Philip K. Jason in THE FLORIDA WEEKLY
