Southern Swamp Explorer
The Southern Swamp Explorer ... your "MUST TAKE" guide for visiting any southern swamp or bog in the U.S.
Did you ever wish you could explore deep inside a swamp without:
~ getting soaking wet
~ becoming totally lost
~ being scared out of your wits
~ getting all mucky
~ or being eaten by an alligator?
Well, now you can .
The Southern Swamp Explorer is your ticket into the real life of a swamp.
You can read it in bed, from your hammock, lying lazily in the grass, or sitting at your desk. You can live the "wild" life right along with the swamp's wild creatures, and not even get a mosquito bite.
OR, you can take this book with you when you go swamping.
It will answer your questions and make you want to know more ~ MUCH more (and you'll probably find the answers right there in the book.)
The unusual format features an illustrated, ongoing, real-life fictional narrative of the interconnected daily lives of more than forty swamp creatures ~ birds, reptiles, mammals, fish, insects and plants, on every right-hand page. Facing each story page are illustrated sidebars crammed full of cool info and fun facts (set to the side to avoid slowing down the story).
Lavish illustrations illuminate everything: animal tracks, frogs maturing, carnivorous plants, floating islands, baby mammals and hatchling birds, animal skulls, hatching mosquitoes, turtle IDs, cypress knees, spider webs, crappie nests, spittle bugs, lizard chin flaps, butterfly cocoons ~ and much, much more.
The Southern Swamp Explorer is a book any nature lover will love and cherish forever.
Carol Lovell-Saas, Biologist, Educator and Director, Biophilia Nature Center, Elberta, Alabama
"I love this book!!! The Southern Swamp Explorer is a real treasure chest and a tool kit that you can take into the swamp, use in the classroom, or just enjoy wherever you may be.
Weaving her rich artwork and natural history lessons into the “big picture,” Brady has created a beautiful portrait of the traditionally unloved swamp. She captures the imagination while highlighting the assets and values of wetlands.
I recommend it for nature education programs, promotion of wetlands conservation, and for sheer pleasure!”
Claire R. Coco, Director, BREC’s Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center, Baton Rouge, LA
"...the Southern Swamp Explorer is loaded with information about southern swamp ecosystems. Natural and cultural history, biology, botany, and ecology, presented in user-friendly text and fun-fact sidebars, is easy to understand and entertaining for all ages.
And with directions to some of the best sites to view southern swamps,
the Southern Swamp Explorer can serve as a great trip planner, too.”
