Despite his material success and outward appearance of happiness, James Conrad feels empty inside. He is spending his 50th birthday alone in South Florida when he decides to take a drive along Alligator Alley into the depths of the Everglades. Searching for childhood memories of his great uncle—a man who left his family behind to live on a Seminole Indian reservation—James discovers his small town definition of success may all be a ruse. When given the chance to make a real change, James Conrad must make the hardest decision of his life.

Alligator Alley is the story of one man's struggle with his own destiny, but it could be the story of anyone facing change in their life. As Robinson states with simple eloquence, “This book asks a very basic question—if you could change, would you?”
