What do you get when you plop a naive Mainer in the middle of a Florida swamp? What if you mix in man-eating mosquitos, a few hungry alligators, and an over zealous park ranger? What you get is a humorous tale from RS Williams as he recounts his first visit to the Everglades National Park. Beneath each carefully placed step lurks danger and laughter.
A Mainer in the Everglades is a collection of short stories, with a few poems tossed in for flavor. To read his work is to know the author himself: his humor, in "Mainer" and the Work Life Stories, his melancholy, in "Keeper" and "Someday". There is beauty in the simplicity of his writing. Each story offers the reader a rich and profound experience that reveals a depth of emotion for all to discover.
