"Crackers in the Glade" is a visually stunning account of bygone days in the Everglades. The largest remaining subtropical wilderness in the United States, the Everglades holds a unique place among all the world's wetlands. Through his writings and illustrations, fisherman, guide, and self-taught artist Rob Storter transports us to the remote, half-wild frontier of southwest Florida in the early part of the twentieth century. There, the events of any one day could include a hurricane, a face-to-face encounter with a panther, or the arrival of the latest packet from Key West.
