Immersed in a world that is often forgotten, the journey along the Florida coastal habitats lead him through a progression of internal conflicts and acceptance. Overcoming adversity from strange animal encounters, unforgiving weather and sometimes poor decision making became a constant battle. By remaining teachable and possessing the willingness to press on, Jeffrey "Treehouse" Buncie would spend five months off the coast of Florida, earning his way to becoming the 15th thru paddler of the Florida Circumnavigational Saltwater Paddling Trail.

Follow alongside as the author paddles the Florida coastline with over 50 detailed color maps.
