Such an honor to read this book about the woman who, more than anyone else, we can thank for the fragments of the Everglades that survive today. A naturalist who works at the Everglades says, "The Everglades are a test. If we pass, we get to keep the planet." The test has not been graded yet, but we seem to be in grave danger of failing.
