Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThese charming tales of Florida in the early nineteenth century were brought to the attention of the University of Florida Press by the late Archie Carr, Florida's preeminent naturalist, who believed they evoked a place, a time, and a way of life that belonged in print again. The Florida peninsula in the 1830s was covered by flatwoods, swamps of giant cypress, and hammocks of cabbage palm and live oak trees. The land teemed with panther, black bear, wild hogs, and white ibis. Writing with clarity and elegance, Whitehead weaves his descriptions of this landscape into an old-fashioned, hair-raising adventure story.
