The river itself rises in one of those lost and nameless lakes in the Floridan central ridge, then is hidden at once in the live oak and cypress forests that creep inland from the coasts. But it can never be said truly to flow. Over the billiard-table flatness of that land it moves so slowly and silently that it gives the effect of a lake stirred by the wind. These dark waters, and the mossdraped woodlands through which they move, are the especial treasure-field and delight of the naturalist and scientist from the great universities of the North.It is a lost river- and it is still a common thing to see a brown, lifeless, floating log suddenly flash, strike, and galvanize into a diving alligator.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
