American naturalist, Winthrop Packard, has given us such accounts as Wild Pastures, Wood Wanderings, and White Mountain Trails now he takes us on a wandering journey along Florida trails as seen from Jacksonville to Key West and from November to April, alerting us to the many inhabitants and their habitat. Through orange groves, palmettos, mangroves, to the sea he tells us about warblers, butterflies, pelicans, alligators, and wild turkeys, and more. Packard writes with a free-flowing narrative that is both informative and entertaining, sometimes dramatic and sometimes poetic. - Summary by Larry Wilson (7 hr 19 min)
