Liza and her mother live in the last balanced ecosystem in North America. While the Gumbo Limbo Hammock in the Florida Everglades is protected by a majestic alligator named Dajun, one day a state official comes in with orders to kill Dajun. Liza must find Dajun and save him, and her search will lead her into an exciting eco-mystery.
From the Publisher:
Liza lives in an unspoiled outpost of the Everglades called Gumbo Limbo Hammock. Some people would call Liza and her mother homeless, but Liza's mother says they are just on vacation until they can afford to buy a house. Meanwhile, officials are searching the Everglades for a missing giant alligator.
Annotation:
Liza, a homeless girl--along with her mother and their friends--work together to protect the environment when an alligator who lives near them in the Everglades is threatened by a pest control officer. When the alligator goes into hiding after being shot by the officer, Liza observes firsthand the interconnectedness of nature. Will she be able to use her knowledge of the natural world to discover where the alligator has hidden?
Author Bio
Jean Craighead George
Born into a family of naturalists, Jean Craighead George has said that her writing, which often focuses on environmental themes, continues the "family business." She graduated from Penn State University in 1941 and then worked as a member of the White House Press corps and as a reporter for "The Washington Post." Her first book, VULPES THE RED FOX (1948), was written in conjunction with her then-husband, John George. The couple had three children together, but divorced in 1964. Her first novel for children, MY SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN, was published in 1959 and was named a Newbery Honor Book. JULIE OF THE WOLVES received the 1973 Newbery Medal. Jean Craighead George has proudly claimed to have kept over 173 pets--not counting cats and dogs. Many of the animals that she cared for have become characters in her books.
