Rudloe, Jack (1988). The Wilderness Coast: Adventures of a Gulf Coast Naturalist. (New York, NY. Truman Books)
AbstractTo most Americans, Florida is Miami and Miami Vice, retired people and Disney World. The Wilderness Coast introduces the reader to another Florida, the West or Gulf Coast. Rudloe aptly describes this area when he writes "The eastern Gulf of Mexico which extends from the Florida Keys north and west to Mobile Bay, has some of the richest and most diverse wild coastline left in the continental United States" (p.3).
