Graham Schorb is an active river guide in the wild areas of North Florida. A native Floridian, he lives in a remote "cracker cabin" that he built himself.
Graham Schorb is a native Floridian. He attended Pinellas Vocational Technical Institute and received a two-year certificate in Horticulture Studies in 1980. Like Henry David Thoreau, he wanted little of the modern world with its many frivolous distractions. Consequently, in the 1980s, he was drawn to North Florida, went into the woods, and built his own cracker cabin. The pioneer lifestyle of early Floridians intrigues him, and Graham strives to live as closely to Nature and as true to pioneer Florida as possible. As a river guide and outdoor enthusiast, he has explored the Suwannee River and Suwannee River Basin and the wild areas of North Florida for over twenty-five years.
He loves to read books about early pioneer exploration, and some of his favorites include William Bartram’s Travels; The Wilderness World of John Muir; Joe and Mark Akerman’s Jacob Summerlin; and Patrick Smith’s A Land Remembered. His photographic contributions and his expertise as a river guide have made this paddler’s guides a reality. Preserving the culture and history of the legendary Suwannee River would have been impossible without his supervision, knowledge, and guidance.
