This important work for general readers and environmentalists alike offers the first major discussion of the formation, development, and history of the Everglades, considered by many to be the most endangered ecosystem in North America. Comprehensive in scope, it begins with South Florida's geologic origins -- before the Everglades became wetlands -- and continues through the 20th century, when sugar reigned as king of the Everglades Agricultural Area.Urging restoration of the Everglades, McCally argues that agriculture, especially sugar growing, must be abandoned or altered. Sure to be influential in all discussions of Florida's future, The Everglades also will be significant for environmentalists focused on any area of North America. Copyright © Libri GmbH.
