Marjory Stoneman Douglas: Voice of the Everglades
(Earth Keepers, nonfiction series)
written by Jennifer Fisher Bryant
illustrated by Larry Raymond
Henry Holt, 1992
ISBN: 978-0516073927

As a young girl, Marjory Stoneman Douglas learned not to believe everything people told her. As an adult, she refused to believe the Florida Everglades should be drained to make room for farms, homes, and roads. She saw the Everglades as part of a much larger ecosystem.

She led the fight to preserve the natural balance and diversity of this mysterious world. She saw herself as a “tough old woman” and, for 60 years, this tough old woman was the voice of the Everglades.
