"Steve's Big Cypress Swamp"

Hi, I'm Steve, I have been visiting the Big Cypress Swamp, in southern Florida, since 1974. I'm one, of about one hundred private land owners, inside of the Big Cypress National Preserve. The following pages and links will give you feel for the Big Cypress Swamp, the Gladesmen Culture and some of the inhabitants of the swamp, both people and other critters.
