Summary
"A collection of Carl Hiaasen's best columns from the past twelve years, covering topics, like hurricanes, off-shore drilling, voting rights, and political corruption, that have become national issues. A VINTAGE PAPERBACK ORIGINAL. Dance of the Reptiles is Carl Hiaasen's third collection of the very best of his columns for the Miami Herald. Covering topics large and small, from local issues like polluted rivers, the criminal justice system, and animal welfare to national stories like the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the Trayvon Martin case, Bernie Madoff's trial, and, of course, his classic commentary on Florida's presidential election woes"--
