“Ditch of Dreams: The Cross Florida Barge Canal & the Struggle for Florida’s Future”
Dig into the long and convoluted history of an effort to cross the Florida peninsula by cutting a waterway from the Atlantic to the Gulf of Mexico, starting with the Ocklawaha River in the 19th century. See how an environmental movement stopped the canal before it was completed, eventually allowing the cleared land to become an expansive greenway.
