The World of the Keys

“I doubt that anyone can travel the length of the Florida Keys without having communicated to his mind a sense of the uniqueness of this land of sky and water and scattered mangrove covered islands. The atmosphere of the Keys is strongly and peculiarly their own . . . This world of the Keys has no counterpart elsewhere in the United States, and indeed few coasts of the Earth are like it.” – Rachel Carson, The Edge of the Sea (1955)
