Glass bottom boat tour by George Bower at Wakulla Springs for the Big Bend Folklife Survey

Description
One reel to reel. Features a glass-bottom boat tour spiel conducted by Bower. He discusses various animals, birds, and trees on the tour, history of the attraction, legends of the springs, Henry the pole vaulting fish, and other natural features. Boat tours have been given at the springs on since the late 1800s. Many of the 1980s drivers were descendents of those early drivers, and provide some of the same folk tales.
