From the school's inaugural season in 1906 through its national championship campaign of 1996, all of the most exciting stories are captured for the very first time in a single book. Included are tales about such great players as 1966 Heisman Trophy winner and current head coach Steve Spurrier and 1996 Heisman quarterback Danny Wuerffel. Fans can read about Florida's early successes in the 1920s, its first bowl team in 1952, the teams of Doug Dickey in the '70s and Galen Hall in the '80s, and, of course, Spurrier's amazing teams of the '90s, including the '96 national champs.

The most beloved and decorated player in Florida history takes fans behind the scenes and into the locker room for one of the greatest eras in the annals of college football. Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Danny Wuerffel, now retired from the NFL, has finally had the time to look back, reminisce, and share his thoughts about that magical time when he was referred to by some "as the greatest passer to ever play college football." Wuerffel gives his many fans a first-time reflection into a variety of topics, including his relationship with Steve Spurrier, his rivalry with Peyton Manning, and how his strong Christian beliefs shaped his football career. Along with award-winning sports columnist and coauthor Mike Bianchi, he replays the big games from each of his four magnificent seasons, talks about the quarterback controversies and quandaries, discusses faith and football, compares Spurrier and Bobby Bowden, and takes readers on a glorious trip that starts with a recruiting visit to Gainesville and culminates with an incredible national championship victory over Florida State in New Orleans. Danny Wuerffel's Tales from the Gator Swamp will take readers on a delightful journey back to the "good old days" of the 1990s, when Spurrier's funning and gunning and cunning style of offense revolutionized the Southeastern Conference. After reading this book, fans will understand why Danny Wuerffel collected as much admiration and as many accolades as perhaps any player in the proud history of college football.

All parties seem to be in agreement that the rivalry between the University of Miami and the University of Florida is as nasty and historical as they come; going back to the thirties, it’s the state of Florida’s oldest major rivalry. Gators beat writer Pat Dooley described the vitriolic rivalry to the author simply as “vile.” History would prove that to be true. In Canes vs. Gators, coaches Urban Meyer, Howard Schnellenberger, Steve Spurrier, Larry Coker, and Ron Zook and several former notable players on both sides of the rivalry, along with key media members for both schools, offer their unique commentary on the intensity of the rivalry. For example, Schnellenberger recalled with anger that after his staff and team were pelted with frozen oranges in 1980, he kicked an extra meaningless field goal in a blowout victory . . . and he wished he’d called on his punter to take the ball and launch it into the Florida student section! Author Marty Strasen, who covered both schools for over a decade, brings to life the greatest moments of this historic rivalry. This book is the perfect gift for Florida college football fans!

Die Familie Bigtree ist weit über Floridas Sümpfe hinaus für ihren Vergnügungspark Swamplandia berühmt. Ava träumte schon immer davon, der große Star der Alligatoren-Show zu werden, doch seit dem Tod ihrer Mutter bleiben die Zuschauer weg. Nachdem erst ihr Bruder, dann ihr Vater aufs Festland verschwunden sind, ist das Mädchen alleine für die Insel und die siebzig Alligatoren verantwortlich – und für ihre ältere Schwester Osceola, die ihr Herz an einen Geist verloren hat. Als auch noch Osceola abhaut, bricht Ava zu einer gefährlichen Odyssee durch den Sumpf auf. Statt gegen Alligatoren kämpft sie nun um ihre Familie und entpuppt sich dabei als wahre Heldin.
