Steven Noll and David Tegeder leave no stone unturned in their outstanding rendering of this most peculiar episode of Florida's often-shameful environmental history."--Tampa Bay History "Reveals as much about modern-day Florida as it does the state's past--particularly when it comes to competing visions of progress, growth, preservation, and the use of political power to achieve those goals."--Florida Trend "Tells the story of the transformation of twentieth-century American liberalism, the fracturing of the New Deal coalition, and the birth of the environmental movement."--New Books in American Studies "Highly recommended."--Choice Noll and Tegeder do an excellent job of placing the canal within the context of local, state, and national politics.
