New Book - Big Cypress Swamp: The Western Everglades

Putting a book together and then
watching it come off the press is
always an exciting adventure.

This book is very different from all of
our other books.
The book has an introduction by Joe Browder,
one of the people who worked so hard to
save Big Cypress Swamp from development;
a poem titled: In The Fakahatchee by Allison
Nist; stories about each of the photographs; a
short history on each of the agencies that take
care of Big Cypress Swamp; another short story
on how we happen to have a gallery in the
middle of more than a million acres of National
Park lands; and, finally, a short story of the
creation of the film by Elam Stoltzfus on the
Big Cypress Swamp, in which Clyde is the host.
