The author follows the history of Florida, which is very much the history of the Everglades. All that wasted land - and in such a great climate - was a magnet for generations who dreamed of what could be if only that swamp was drained. They never did succeed of course, but along the way the south Florida ecosystem was deeply affected. In some ways permanently, as when the rapids of the Miami River were dynamited, but in other ways not so permanently. If you are familair with Miami you know the names Flagler, Krome, Broward, Perrine....all were players in the making of the state what it is today.
