Jack E. Davis is the author of the award-winning An Everglades Providence: Marjory Stoneman Douglas and the American Environmental Century, a dual biography of the America's premier wetlands and the woman who led a movement to save it. His latest book, The Gulf: The Making of an American Sea, to be published by Liveright/W. W.
