Episode 1: Marjory Stoneman Douglas and Why She Never Gave Up on the River of Grass
2020 Aug 1033m 55s
“And, Florida, it’s Florida. The 1920s.” In the first installation of History Rant, the Bridgets talk about the civil rights activist - suffragette - conservationist Marjory Stoneman Douglas and her legacy. From the opening paragraph of “River of Grass”: "There are no other Everglades in the world. They are, they have always been, one of the unique regions of the earth, remote, never wholly known. Nothing anywhere else is like them; their vast glittering openness, wider than the enormous visible round of the horizon, the racing free saltiness and sweetness of their massive winds, under the dazzling blue heights of space. They are unique also in the simplicity, the diversity, the related harmony of the forms of life they enclose. The miracle of the light pours over the green and brown expanse of saw grass and of water, shining and slow-moving below, the grass and water that is the meaning and the central fact of the Everglades of Florida. It is a river of grass.”
