Often described as the savior of the Everglades, Marjory Stoneman Douglas is best known for having been Florida's most passionate environmentalist, but she was first, foremost, and always a writer. As the author of fiction and nonfiction books, most notably The Everglades: River of Grass, and scores of short stories, Douglas devoted over ninety years to her career as a writer. Her fascinating and little-known work as a journalist began as a columnist for the Miami Herald.
The Florida History and Culture SeriesEdited by Raymond Arsenault, University of South Florida; and Gary R. Mormino
During the past half-century, the expanding population and increased national and international visibility of Florida have sparked a great deal of popular interest in the state's past, present, and projected future. But the literature on Florida's distinctive heritage and character has not kept pace with the state's enhanced status. This series is designed to remedy that situation by providing an accessible and attractive format for the publication of Florida-related books, including scholarly books, works of synthesis, carefully selected works of popular history, memoirs, and anthologies. While the series will feature books of historical interest, the editors encourage authors researching Florida's environment, politics, literature, and popular or material culture to submit projects for consideration. This series is no longer accepting new titles.
