Florida's Everglades National Park, the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States, is home to colorful wading birds, gators and crocs, panthers, manatees, and spiders the size of a human hand. Readers will learn that this region, nicknamed the "River of Grass," is much more than the swamp that many people may picture when they hear of the Glades. Author Susan Jankowski delves into the area's history, including the Seminole Wars, a railroad failure called "Flagler’s Folly," drainage efforts, and current preservation challenges. A range of activities for modern-day visitors is also included.
