MIWI is proud to present our member, Betsy Perdichizzi, re-enacting "Dr. Mary Olds" at our July meeting, with renditions from her book "Into the Florida Wilderness." The sketch is followed by a discussion of Betsy's joys and woes in her alternating roles of author and publisher.

As always, admission to MI Writers, Inc. meetings is no charge for first-time visitors. This is your chance to see one of the finest historical re-enactors in SW Florida and learn about Mary Olds, one of the major forces in shaping Marco Island. Betsy will be answering questions afterwards, so it a great opportunity to learn from this historian, author and publisher.

Women in the Everglades: A Brief History of Pioneers and Early Environmentalists
● The Loneliness of Pioneer Life
● Miami, Coconut Grove, Ft Lauderdale
● Everglades, Marco, Sanibel, Fort Myers
● Drainage and the Lake Okeechobee Area
● Activism − Trees, Birds, Seminoles, Votes

Local author Marya Repko encapsulates information from her previous Brief History
books but adds much more as she summarizes the role of women in the settling of
South Florida from the east to west coasts and around Lake Okeechobee. After describing the hardships of pioneer life, the book cites examples of how women took a leading role on environmental issues, even before they could vote. There are numerous historic photos, a timeline, a list of further reading, and brief biographies of some of the key people.

Our member Betsy Perdichizzi is not only an accomplished author and publisher but also a co-founder and active participant in the Marco Island Re-Enactors. Tommie Barfield is one of the local historical figures that Betsy re-enacts. She and her husband were powerful forces in getting the Marco Island Historical Society established and the museum built. It was Betsy's over-the-moon successful first re-enactment of Tommie Barfield that ignited the founding of the MI Re-Enactors. We are fortunate that she is offering this presentation again this summer.
