Abstract:

Once described as a frontier beyond the frontier, the Everglades in Florida was long a haven for the lawless--a hideout for moonshiners, outlaws and smugglers. Throughout the labyrinth of mangrove keys, there were deadly snakes and alligators, exotic vegetation and trees filled with varicolored plume birds. Against this primeval setting, the motion picture Across the Everglades brings into drmatic focus the war that was waged between the ruthless exterminators of rare bird species and the conservationists of wildlife in the hidden land--in the days when Miami was little more than a frontier town and Miami Beach was a swamp. The full text includes a long Introduction which provides a rich visual image of the dazzling wonders of the Everglades and the castaway life of its unruly inhabitants.--Jacket.
