Book Description Tidewater Publishers, Centreville, MD, 1983. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. "Talbot County, which served James A. Michener as the setting for his famous novel Chesapeake, is very much the epitome of what Maryland's Eastern Shore is and has been, both in fact and legend. Nowhere else in America do earth and salt water meet in so small an area over so many miles of tidal shoreline. Bounded on the north by the Wye River and its branches, bisected by the Miles and Tred Avon rivers, and skirted on the east and south by the Tuckahoe and Choptank, Talbot comes close to being an island in Chesapeake Bay.Dickson Preston chronicles Talbot's four centuries of history in a richly detailed, anecdotal narrative. He makes full use of a vast compilation of original documents and from these and other records, constructs an authentic social history, bringing to life the county's people and their times. Adding to the vividness of his portrayal are the scores of rare and fascinating illustrations of Talbot County life which picture editor Norman Harrington has assembled and identified exclusively for this book." Very well illustrated. x + 386 pages with index. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in protective plastic wrapper; VERY GOOD condition. Seller Inventory # 001341
