"Down to the Waterline contains a tapestry of several beautiful interwoven themes: that nature
must be reckoned with when determining waterfront property lines; that we seldom if ever fully
anticipate the repercussions of our technological achievements; that societal progress means
more than bettering the human community—we now realize the whole biocommunity must be bettered;
that often the natural world is far more beneficial to human society when left in its natural
state. Applying these themes to the history of Florida's public/private property battles
creates a fascinating tale."--David C. Slade, Esq., editor of Putting the Public Trust Doctrine
