Albert Seely, sometimes known as the painter of Panther Key or the Hermit of Dismal Key, left a manuscript behind of how, when and why he came to live on several of the keys i the ten Thousand Island during a ten-year period in the late 60's.
He started out in 1967 with a boat, a tent, an ax, machete, footlocker, folding camp cot, beat-up card table, folding chair, water jugs, skillet, pots, can opener, candles, and a load of supplies. He did not have the least understanding of channel markers, how to read a chart, or knowledge of boats or motors. He grounded and sunk his boat, lost his footlocker, and drenched his supplies on his first attempt landing at Comer Key near Chokoloskee. Three boats came to his rescue...not a good beginning.
This tale captures Al's sense of humor, variety of interests and activities, including a harrowing escapade with turtle poachers. It is rounded out with pictures, painting and rare photos of hishermit-y friends.
