Excerpt from The Contributor, Vol. 17: A Monthly Magazine; May, 1896 Twenty years ago the man who might have had the temerity to pro pose to the Florida cracker - as the dwellers in those great southern swamps are generally called - that he turn to and hunt alligators for a liv ing, would have been mercilessly laughed at, and probably dubbed a fool into the bargain. Of late years, however, the mandate of fashion has declared the skin of the alligator to be a valuable article of commerce, and the desire to profit thereby has created a class of aquatic hunters whose personality is generally as unique as their calling.
