  • Pepper Langley relished his days of establishing his own business after his high school commencement speaker told him he had a gold mine in his back yard.

  • The Country Philosopher, Stephen Gore Uhler got an elbow from another philosopher, Amos Arthur Holmes but Steve wins overall for truthfulness, not a trait he learned from Jack Rue. 
  • Between Jack Rue and Fred McCoy, old tales are here for a new generation of tale-learners eager to find digital news of days of old. 
  • Some of the old gold mines of The Solomon's Islander and The Chesapeake have been reopened and we found Tony Marconi and Lenny Rudow hiding back in the caverns, grinning and eager to share their news and views with the world. 
  • The Bill Burton State Park at Cambridge, to the Cape Charles harbor shown on the cover, unite both shores of the Chesapeake to bring you, the reader, who may or may not dabble in U-Boat fantasies and time-warps, a complete view of the Tidewater region. 
  • The Tidewater area contributed to the birth of Rock and Roll with the infamous home-grown talent of Link Wray and Greg Laxton makes sure Link's place in history is secure. 
  • No part of the Chesapeake lore could be complete without more Letters from Point Lookout Hotel, and while Alan Brylawski is now ninety-six, he refuses to join the Dead Poets Society. Alan tells you how to fix fried hard-crabs in great detail. 
  • The Chesapeake region was important to the preparation for launching the successful offensives in both theatres of WWII and John Peterson explains that effort. 
  • Gail Whitney is a fervent chicken-necker and she shares her best tips with all for a basket full of crabs. 
  • Detailed follow-ups of the Pirate Poachers of the Bay are revealed by weak enforcement of Natural Resources laws. How these poachers get away with robbing the bounty of the Bay is disturbing and outrageous. Read what one prosecutor says should be done to get the outlaws behind jail bars and off of oyster bars in sanctuaries. 
Thanks for joining us on the Chesapeake. --- Ken Rossignol

Review:

"Does the sea beckon you? Do tall ships sail sleepless nights? Do you feel the lure of the Dolphin? Sometimes do you just want to chuck it all and go?"
The Chesapeake: Oyster Buyboats, Ships & Steamed Crabs
There's a lot of good, fun stories about the Chesapeake in this volume. A lot of the stories are satirical, with good punches of hilarity. The featured writers always have something to say. One of my favorites is "The Duke of Solomon's", how a wager goes well for a sharp-shootin' bloke.
It's an entertaining read, with lots of vibrant writers participating in it. It covers fishing, oyster catching, hunting and other nautical-themed topics. Overall, it's a fun, light read. With it being filled with short stories, you can read as much or little as you want at a time." - In The Bookcase"I have enjoyed all the Chesapeake books. However, this one made my mouth water. being a lover of anything that swims, especially in salt water. This book is causing me to plan a vacation to the area to experience the area and the food firsthand. I highly recommend the Chesapeake series for adventure and enjoyable reading." --- J. Mitchell"This was a very interesting read. Every chapter was a story of its own. Some were funny while others were serious and there were even some seafood recipes and pictures thrown in throughout the book too. What I liked most about the book is that it transported you back to that time in history and made you feel like you were there with them! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book!" --- Cindi Knowles"Once again a great collection of stories. I have a few favorites, some being Letter from Point Lookout Hotel, The Duke of Solomon's, and The Moose Pie story. It's a Great collection of Short reads which includes recipes and neat pictures. I loved all the men in their bathing suits (picture) that was at the end of another good little family story. Even knowing nothing about The Chesapeake Bay area, it's people or traditions I still enjoyed the book very much. Thanks to Ken and all the other contributors" --- Linda M.
