From Eden to Sahara: Florida's Tragedy

Botanist John Kunkel Small's "From Eden to Sahara: Florida's Tragedy" is a classic in the environmental literature of Florida as it warned of the dangers of dredging and draining as early as 1929. The reprint of this prophetic book includes updated forewords by award-winning nature author and filmmaker Bill Belleville and scientists Dr. Jay Exum and Randy Mejeur, as well as a valuable annotated glossary and many of Small's original photos. Out of print since its first edition, "Florida's Tragedy" is a seminal book that is required reading for all who would understand how Florida has long sought to tame its unique natural landscape. It also provides an invaluable time capsule in which a trained botanist records a Florida that no longer exists
