The Man Who Invented Florida (Doc Ford Series #3) by Randy Wayne White

When solitary marine biologist Doc Ford focused his telescope on the woman in the white boat, he didn't know his life was about to be capsized: that his conniving uncle Tucker Gatrell would discover the Fountain of Youth, that The National Enquirer would write about it, and that the law would beat down his door in search of three missing men.

But Doc Ford is about to find these things out— the hard way. Because in the shadowy world of Southwest Florida, where gators yawn, cattle craze, and Indian bones are buried, mysteries great and small have found the man to solve The Man Who Invented Florida by bestselling author Randy Wayne White.

I love this book... read it twice... a keeper.... funny, wise, a great read for those who love old timey Florida. I think it would make a wonderful movie... with Tommy Lee Jones...

A great read, full of history, nuance and stories of Florida's not so distance pass before it got paved over. This book indeed showed him to be the new John MacDonald. Thoroughly enjoyable, and a shame that the books he's churning out almost 20 years later are very shallow in comparison.

I read RWW's Doc Ford novels out of sequence starting with Hunters Moon. It had me hooked. I loved the density of character, the shared and distant past references, of all his books, but The Man Who Invented Florida is his best. Deep Rich Characters, surprising plot twists. I cared more for his characters in this one than all the others. Don't get me wrong, Sanibel Flats, and Hunter's Moon are terriffic! Dark Light is a foray into Stephen King's zones.... re-defining a ghost story. I'm still thinking about it...
