An excerpt from William Bartram’s travel writings, transformed almost to naturalistic fantasy, when he stumbles upon his first swamp full of alligators:
"Behold him rushing forth from the flags and reeds. His enormous body swells. His plaited tail brandished high, floats upon the lake. The waters like a cataract descend from his opening jaws. Clouds of smoke issue fro m his dilated nostrils. The earth trembles with his thunder."
