Wildlife of Everglades National Park.

Scope and content:
The dense canopy of red mangrove trees bordering Squawk Creek gave way to the open vastness of the Everglades. All morning Walter A. Weber and I had been working our way through uncharted waters from our camp at Little Banana Patch, Florida, historic campsite of Seminole Indians and perhaps the ancient Calusas before them. Every bend of the stream had looked the same, with monotonous thickets of spraddle-rooted mangroves growing along the swampy shorelines. We had been finding our way by the "feel of the place" and not from recognizable landmarks (map, page 87).
