Blackwater Letters is a collection of observations and essays on the natural history of rivers in Florida—a state that contains nearly 26,000 miles of them. That distance is tantamount to a trip west from my home here in Tampa, around the world and back, over to New Orleans, and then onward to Galveston (after a night or two on Bourbon Street).

They’re written by a team of one, usually at night, long after the kids are asleep. They have no political agenda. I write about nature because I have a need to. Most days, I’m a biologist, who’s spent over twenty years researching and teaching infectious disease; natural history, I have studied my whole life.
