DAN'S NEW BOOK: The Cove of
the Withlacoochee, an evocative name from the past
is revived as the title for this presentation of
photographs taken from the waterways and lands bordered
by the Withlacoochee River and along Florida's Nature
Coast. Using medium and large format cameras up
to 8x10 inches for incredible detail and richness
of image, Cove resident and photographer Dan Montgomery
has captured the special beauty of this region's
wild and sometimes hidden places.
Historians define the Cove of the Withlacoochee
as the roughly 135 square miles between the Withlacoochee
River and the Tsala Apopka chain of lakes, significant
as the stronghold of Osceola and other leaders of
the Seminole resistance leaders of the Seminole
resistance during the time of the Second Seminole
War. The photos in this book are from the 21st century
and cover scenes of this varied territory from upon
its seven rivers, within the forests and to the
Gulf Coast, in and around the Nature Coast of Florida.
