One of the most important botanical books ever published on the flora and fauna of Florida. Small, the first curator of museums at the New York Botanical Garden, was an early botanist in South Florida. He was the first to document much of the flora of Florida. His visits over the course of nearly 30 years also enabled him to document some of the earliest effects of man on South Florida. His "From Eden to Sahara: Florida's Tragedy" documented deterioration that he had personally witnessed over the years.
