Following in the tradition of John Muir, William Bartram, and Henry David Thoreau, Belleville forges intimate connections with his surroundings. Like the works of Marjory Stoneman Douglas and Archie Carr, his evocative stories carry an urgent and important call to preserve what is left of the natural world.

Reader mispronounced many local words. if you aren't from Florida probably won't bother you. Otherwise good, insightful.

Good writer but pretentious.
It was okay but there was an underlying tone of arrogance in the author's voice that ended up sounding like everyone else that moves to the South and then tries to change it to their idea of what is best and right in life. Generally ends up being just what they were running from. Stopped at the point that he generalized the hog hunter as some redneck drinking Jack out of a flask. This fella isn't any better than the City dwellers that take their weekend adventures then retreat to the comfort of their insular existence. Even worse because he recognizes those as Exo-Ninnys yet is only one step removed and probably in the wrong direction. The narrator mispronounced more local words than I can count. Read A Land Remembered for a slice of the real Florida and the crackers who knew it.
