A Watery Wilderness
Special | 26m 44s
A maze of mangrove islands meanders from Marco Island to Florida Bay, an ever-changing tangle of trees and shallows that inspired a larger-than-life name -- the Ten Thousand Islands. In this watery wilderness, hardy pioneers scratched out a living on high heaps of shells left by the Calusa Indians. In 1947, most of Florida's final frontier became part of the new Everglades National Park.
