About this title


Photographer Warren set out with his camera in 1985 to record every aspect of life apropos of the Chesapeake Bay region: native boats, farmers tilling the land, church gatherings, commerce in large and small towns, the watermen of remote places. The warmth and power of his black & white images paired with extended quotes from the people of the region collected by the photographer's daughter, Mame Warren, create an aesthetically delightful documentary of a unique area. 9x12" Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.


"A celebration of the Bay and a moving one at that. Despite its decline, the Chesapeake has such natural abundance, and lends itself so well to photography, that one as skilled with a camera as Marion Warren can find much to bring out. The many short and evocative interviews with bay residents only indicate further the Chesapeake's resilience -- and its glory." -- Tim Warren, Baltimore Sun

"A book of enormous scope, with images chosen from a lifetime of photography... A comprehensive look at the forces that have lead to widespread pollution and overfishing of the Chesapeake Bay and the critical issues that will control its future." -- Walter Rissmeyer, Audubon Naturalist News

"A retrospective of one of Maryland's most distinguished photographers." -- Maryland Magazine

"Maryland history in full dimension, thoughtfully crafted by interpretive artists wise enough to step back and let their subjects speak for themselves -- the magic of Warren and Warren." -- Maryland Historical Magazine

"A stunning retrospective." -- Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Experience the grandeur of the Chesapeake Bay -- its scenery and its people -- through the dramatic black and white photographs of Marion Warren and the words of the people who live there." -- Washingtonian

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
