It was always my intent to put together a book titled "Vanishing Florida". The photography was mainly concentrated on Florida's vanishing wilderness, but with a look at our history, especially in this area, I now realize that our historic venues are also vanishing. Our schools are greatly at fault for not emphasizing our local and statewide history. What made settlers come and stay in Florida? I can imagine what the pest situation must have been like before the advent of pesticides. And the humid climate could not have been the most inviting. I will continue to study the area, both in words and in images that I create. Stay tuned.
