Marjory Stoneman Douglas brought the world's attention to the need to preserve The Everglades. In 1947 the government was in the midst of establishing the Everglades National Park and turning loose the Army Corps of Engineers to control floods--both of which seemed like saviors for the Glades. But neither turned out to be the answer. Save Our Everglades, which Douglas declared was "not nearly enough."

The Everglades, River of Grass is a narration of the natural beauty and all the wildlife contained in the Everglades. The Everglades is not a swamp, but a river of grass.
