Escape to the Everglades

As a writer/researcher who has written a Florida History book myself, (CRACKER COW:A Narrative of Florida History)I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book for middle grade readers. It provided a great plot, characters who grabbed you and kept your interest all the way through, and lots of Florida history, all wrapped up in a great story.

Escape to the Everglades

The authors have captured the combination of adventure and history into a story that will appeal to the younger reader. Their previous RACE to KITTY HAWK and most recent KIDNAPPED in KEY WEST, are excellent examples of similiar writings.....would recommend all three, great for grandchildren too.


ESCAPE TO THE EVERGLADES is the exciting and thought provoking story of Will Cypress, a fourteen-year-old Seminole boy of mixed heritage. Middle grade readers will be intrigued by his adventures when he leaves his village to fight with Osceola's warriors during the Second Seminole War. As Will treks up the Florida peninsula in 1837 to find Osceola's camp, he encounters many difficult situations along the way. Nothing, however, prepares him for the challenge he faces when he discovers a well-kept family secret. ESCASPE TO THE EVERGLADES is an entertaining read filled with fascinating facts about Florida and describes a thrilling (and historically true) escape scene that is sure to capture the imaginations of young readers.
