The Man Who Invented Florida

Another wonderful entry (number three) in Randy Wayne White's Doc Ford series.

Doc plays a relatively minor role in this one, though; he's got his research to do. The crime and intrigue from the first two books are absent. The focus, instead, is on a handful of colorful characters. Doc's scheming uncle claims to have discovered a fountain of youth on his property. He's also, unfortunately, a suspect in the disappearance of a state environmental consultant, a surveyor, and a TV poet/fisherman. (Really.) All in all, a great yarn, and very funny in places.
