Kanapaha Botanical Gardens' newsletter - Garden Gate - is published quarterly and distributed to the Friends of Kanapaha as a benefit of membership.
Summer of the Dragon
For all practical purposes, naturalists and unenlightened civilians dwell on different planets. Kanapaha Botanical Gardens director Don Goodman was born a hard-wired naturalist and shares the secrets of this unique perspective in tales of a lifetime of interactions with animals and plants… from the magical boyhood incident when two snake eggs hatched in his hand to the loss of his right arm to a horrifying attack by a giant alligator.
Thrown into the mix are laugh-out-loud stories of student misadventures, colorful eccentricities, British soldiers cooking up a batch of psychotropic greens at Jamestown and a float trip down Florida’s grand Ichetucknee River that became "the Donner Party afloat."
If you don't know bastard toadflax from devil’s dung, this is the book for you!
