Read full description of the books Killing Mister Watson:A very interesting book -- set in the "frontier/wilderness" area of south Florida around 1900, told from multiple viewpoints. Mr. Watson was an enigmatic figure -- farmer, family man, good neighbor, and probable killer. This is the first in a trilogy in which the author is teasing out the real story (and its meaning?) from legend. Story is told by revolving cast of neighbors and relatives, second book is from the viewpoint of a son, and third is told by Mr. Watson. Not sure if I'm up to the story told again and again but maybe so . . . this one definitely worth reading, especially since the Everglades is a place I've visited and hope to visit again. Author does a good job of capturing the landscape and history of the area as well as telling a story.
