One morning Tyler MacCauley's father wakes up next to a dead man, gathers his family, and flees New York. For the next five and a half years, the MacCauleys see few people who don't call the Florida swamp home. Then, in 1906, within days of each other, two strangers show up at the MacCauley settlement on Lostman's River. The first offers Tyler's father a job killing birds for their plumes and alligators for their hides, and is turned away. The second asks thirteen-year-old Ty to be his guide through the area, on what he calls a scientific expedition. For three dollars a day, enough to ease his family's poverty, Ty agrees to accompany the "strange little man." The expedition sets in motion a series of events that make Ty question his own values, wonder about degrees of treachery, and worry about the future of the place he has grown to love. And it forces the MacCauleys to confront their greatest fear...

My son used this book for school. He enjoyed reading it with his class. He read the book before it was due.

This is definitely one of my favorite books that we have read in English Class. Well worth the cost, and shipped right away.

This book takes us back to the Turn-of-the Century Everglades, where 13-year-old Tyler is growing up in his second home. Although innocent of murder, father has fled from the New York City law to squat in anonymity, barely supporting his family off the swamps of the 10,00 Islands. (This story reminds me somewhat of To Walk the Sky Path, because we witness the clash between the Seminole Indians and white "culture." )
But the biggest conflict arises from Plumers (men who kill off exotic birds for their fancy feathers) and Gator Hide Hunters. Only out for profit with no regard for preservaton of species, these mercenary barbarians will kill any humans who oppose them. And the Auduboners are little better in that they have to kill specimens of rare anaimals to preserve them in museums, before the species becomes extinct! Conservation of the Everglades as a habitat has been a 90-year struggle, so the theme is timely.
Tyler is lured into acting as guide to a fancy city type who claims to be a naturalist, but Tyler's Seminole friend is suspicious and regrets that he has confided to Tyler the location of a secret rookery. The "scientific" expedition which hires him to serve as guide and artist turns out to be an elaborate masquerade to shoot the rare birds. This disastrous trip sets in motion a series of events that make Ty question his own values and wonder about the degrees of treachery exhibited by civilized man.
Tyler realizes his growing concern for the watery wilderness; he has grown to love his new home and does not want to be a part of its destruction. Some wrestle alligators for sport, but Tyler's famliy wrestles their own conscience as they face their past and consider their future--living in a web of fear and lies. This is a serious book, but one which will appeal to boys who like Survival and Adventure. On the way they, like Tyler, will also discover the Moral adventure as we look into the heart of men and boys. The attentive reader will recognize greed and ! honor, fear and loyalty, suspicion and integrity all coexisting in the human heart.
