Written in beautiful, flowing, prose that captures the spirit of Marjorie Stoneman Douglass and her writing, Among the Beautiful Beasts artfully tells the story of Marjorie Stoneman Douglas' life. Beginning with Marjory's early life, we are able to see where her passion stems from as well as how her early life set her up for a life of independence and activism. I loved the descriptions of the Everglades and the wild that existed in Florida before it was developed. Seeing the Everglades through Marjory's eyes helped to see how she became captivated with the wilderness. I enjoyed learning about Marjory's life and how she constantly fought for her independence and what she believed was right. Overall, an amazing story about a captivating and determined woman.
