Author Peter Matthiessen found the Hamilton clan so fascinating that he included a fictional account of their lives in his novel, Killing Mr. Watson.
I follow my slave ancestor, Richard Hamilton and his sons to the ending of an era when the National Park Service evicted the residents, the pioneers, of the Everglades.
Along the journey, I uncover secrets and stories, polygamy, bootlegging, fist fights, murders, gangsters, killers, and tales of tomahawks and missing schoolteachers.
