Summary
The history of the Everglades is a dramatic yet little known story of humanity's attempt to conquer nature. This program, told through the lives of a handful of colorful and resolute characters, explores the repeated efforts to reclaim, control and transform what was seen as a vast wasteland into an agricultural and urban paradise, and, ultimately, the drive to preserve America's greatest wetland
