"Giants of the Swamp: The Logging History of the Everglades and Big Cypress"    the new book by Cesar Becerra
 

 

     What happened to the native cypress trees of Florida? Florida Historian Cesar Becerra documents the big logging boom of the mid 20th century in Florida.

    When most of America had switched to chainsaws, the loggers of South Florida were doing things the old fashioned way; cross cut saws, steam powered mills and locomotives and raw sweat... inside the last frontier..... they toiled dangerously (The Saturday Evening Post called the Big Cypress/Everglades Logging Operations the most dangerous job in 1958) as they took down the last of the giant Cypress and Pine Trees in the Southern United States.
