Editorial Reviews


"...This book hits the bull's-eye ... more than just an adolescent thrill ride ora 'coming of age' story.  I almost feltas if at times I was there amidst the characters, soaking up the lushsurroundings.  By far, one of the besthistory lessons I have ever had the privilege of taking.    - Glen Marcus for MBR

" adventure of epicproportions sure to ignite the imaginations of readers old or young!"
"Some might compare this story to Mark Twain's 'Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn', and rightly so. ...  But I found it to be more of a history lesson, with endearing and well-written characters to carry us on a wonderful journey. ... I would recommend this story to be used as a textbook in all Florida history classes."   - Magnolia Blossom Review
"...the ending arrives much too quickly." --Gary Stout
"A nostalgic novel with anenvironmental message that illuminates the book without distracting in any wayfrom the fun." --Blogcritics
"This is a remarkably well-told tale that brings the past to life.The characters are incredibly real and it is easy to join in their joys,sorrows, fear, and excitement." --Melinda Hills for Readers'

"Filled with a strong story, wonderful imagery, and well developedcharacters, the book paints a vivid picture of the time with a solid mix ofhistory, the clash of different cultures, the still prevalent issues ofinequality across race, gender, and mindset..." --GaryStout

From the Author

Fall in love with the Florida that used to be.

One of the reasons I wrote"The River Way Home" was to let people experience what the St. Lucie Riverand Indian River Lagoon were like before human beings dredged the canals thatconnect them and the Caloosahatchee River to Lake Okeechobee.

Florida'snatural systems of wetlands and lakes originally cleansed the runoff fromCentral Florida by draining it slowly down the Kissimmee Valley throughLake Okeechobee to the Everglades. Today, that water flushes through theSt. Lucie and Caloosahatchee Rivers into the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico,polluting them all, while the Everglades starve.

It's my hope that everyone who reads "The River Way Home" will get toknow the rivers that used to be, fall in love with them as I have, and join thefight to save them and the Everglades.  There has to be a better answer.
