Okefenokee Swamp-Blackwater Country, April, 1992 National Geographic Magazine

A mysterious aura surrounds the Okefenokee Swamp also known as "Land of the Trembling Earth." One of the more remote regions of the American South, alligators and Florida panthers hide in the shadow. People of rural Georgia and Florida have a rich culture seeped in tradition. Their lives are filled with family reunions, beauty contests, canoeing, fishing and simples ways of life. Wetlands landscapes create rivers that flow to the sea abundant with fish and bird life.
