A Shameless Plug

All of my diaries here are draft chapters for a number of books that I am working on. One of these is now available at Amazon. So if you are cooped up inside and need something to read, take a virtual trip to Florida with me.

Wild Florida: Wildlife, Plants, and Natural Wonders from the Sunshine State

(Amazon Kindle and Print)

Within its 60,000 square miles, Florida is a natural wonder. It has the only subtropical zones in the continental United States, its shoreline has the only tropical coral reefs, and it has a number of mammals, birds and reptiles that are found nowhere else. This book describes Wild Florida, from its deep geological history to its varied ecological zones to its unique wildlife, ranging from Alligators to Manatees to Air Plants. Illustrated.
