Gladesmen: Gator Hunters, Moonshiners, and Skiffers (Florida History and Culture) by Glen Simmons, Laura Ogden

ldquo;An homage to the rugged lsquo;swamp ratsrsquo; who were largely overlooked or scorned by the regionrsquo;s historians, naturalists, and adventurers.rdquo;-Miami Herald ldquo;Documents an aspect of Florida history and culture of which far too little has been written. . . . [Gladesmen] is alive with South Florida history and spiced with Simmonsrsquo; understated humor and world view.rdquo;-Folk Winds ldquo;Contains interesting tales of outlaws, moonshiners and other characters-some who lived on the edge of right and wrong-and roamed the inhospitable backcountry prairies of soft muck and massive mosquitoes.rdquo;-South Dade News Leader ldquo;We Floridians sometimes . . . long for the simple life of pioneers and wonder how we would manage lsquo;living off the land.rsquo; This book serves as a slap in the face of such fantasy.rdquo;-St. Petersburg Times ldquo;Simmons tells us that he is no hero, but he is the stuff of Daniel Boone, Davey Crockett, Jim Bridger, and Alfred Wallace.rdquo;-Florida Frontier Gazette ldquo;Simmons is Floridarsquo;s answer to Huckleberry Finn.rdquo;-Georgia Historical Quarterly
