Death in the Everglades chronicles the demise of one of 20th—century Florida's most enduring folk heroes. This fascinating biography of Guy Bradley's abbreviated but eventful life is emblematic of the struggle to tame the Florida frontier without destroying it. Author Stuart McIver's richly textured narrative storytelling of a chapter in the history of American environmentalism as well as the subsequent controversies resurrects a true folk hero.
