River of Grass book

Marjory Stoneman Douglas (1890–1998) was a journalist, author, activist, and conservationist. She spent years researching her book, River of Grass. She realized the importance of the Everglades for Florida's freshwater resources, and this landmark book helped change the national perception of the Everglades as a wasteland into a that of unique ecosystem supporting an abundance of life. In 1969, Douglas founded Friends of the Everglades, an organization whose mission is to preserve, protect, and restore the Everglades. (The Everglades: River of Grass book by Marjory S. Douglas, 1947, Collection of the Museum of Florida History)
