Marjory Saves the Everglades: The Story of Marjory Stoneman Douglas

Marjory Stoneman Douglas didn’t intend to write about the Everglades but when she returned to Florida from World War I, she hardly recognized the place that was her home. The Florida that Marjory knew was rapidly disappearing — the rare orchids, magnificent birds, and massive trees disappearing with it.

Marjory couldn’t sit back and watch her home be destroyed — she had to do something. Thanks to Marjory, a part of the Everglades became a national park and the first park not created for sightseeing, but for the benefit of animals and plants. Without Marjory, the part of her home that she loved so much would have been destroyed instead of the protected wildlife reserve it has become today. From acclaimed children’s book biographer Sandra Neil Wallace comes the inspiring and little-known story of the remarkable journalist who saved the Florida Everglades from development and ruin.
