M.C. Davis was a self-made man from Florida who for the first half of his life thrived and prospered as a gambler. An unlikely transformation occurred that drastically changed the trajectory of his life from entrepreneur to conservationist. Without fully divesting himself of his entrepreneurial roots, M.C. dedicated his finances to purchasing and protecting vast amounts of land in the southeastern United States. Nature's Wealth recounts some of those significant accomplishments through photographs and text all completed by the author during his time spent with Davis.
Davis is no longer with us, but his vision continues through his dedicated family and close associates of so many years. The goal of Nature's Wealth is to highlight a new conservation ethic that leverages power of government, the insight of science, and the resources of business to effect long-lasting and significant conservation initiatives.
