A vast and largely unexplored wildlife corridor lies hidden on the western side of Florida, stretching from the Everglades to the Alabama border. Three friends set off to immerse themselves in this “Forgotten Coast,” vowing to traverse it only by routes navigable by the Florida black bear. Their thousand-mile journey by foot, bike, and paddle uncovers a lost American wilderness and stresses the vital importance of conserving it.
