About this title


Text and photographs portray the daily life and culture of the inhabitants of the Chesapeake Bay region

From Library Journal:

This pictorial introduction to the Lower Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay focuses on selected individuals to show how people and nature are dealing with forces of change. Successive chapters portray the traditional life of watermen and crab fishing, altered by economic and ecological forces; examine marshland and riverine ecosystems; present boat builders who exemplify the pride of craft that is succumbing to homogenization; and describe development projects that conflict with preservationin lifestyles, customs, and environment. Although both photos and text tend to gloss over harshness and ugliness, this is still a good, broad overview of an area in transition. Roland Person, Southern Illinois Univ. Lib., Carbondale
