"The Florida Everglades of a hundred years ago was a lawless frontier, a haven for renegades and desperadoes. Into this moral and physical wilderness comes Edgar J. Watson, who immediately becomes a figure of towering importance to his fellow planters scratching their living among the mangroves and shell mounds. A troubling reputation precedes Watson, and as he himself grows in stature, so does his violent legend."
