By the end of A Land Remembered, it is hard not to like the MacIveys for their winning ways; but at the same time it is impossible not to see how their industry, which was once a boon, has managed to implicate them — and thousands like them — in an environmental disaster so vast that it affects virtually an entire state.

And the depiction of the African-American Skittle feels somehow racist by modern standards as well, although it probably is more historically accurate than Tobias MacIvey's enlightened attitude towards him.

Additionally, the Foundation supports necessary legal actions to help protect the Everglades.
