I re-read the Travis McGee series every few years. I love his take on the world and his environmentalism. I wish John D. MacDonald was still around, he was getting better and better as time went on and I know he would have a lot to say about the state of the world now.

Many people read his books to try to figure out Travis Mcgee. Focus on the other characters and you will find the real story of Florida and all the warts on that lovely skin.
