Have any of you read Peter Mathiessen's trilogy about the outlaw Watson at the turn of the century? A good portion of it takes place in the everglades where he develops a successful sugar cane industry, albeit while saving costs by ridding himself of labor.


He recently rewrote the trilogy into one, long novel, Shadow Country. Great reads!
