Bay Country: Reflections of a Chesapeake Dweller

by Tom Horton
 
Bay Country is nature writing at its most informed and informative. Personal, even lyrical, but never in isolation, it looks at our environment broadly and deeply. The secret, Horton tells us, 'is that I never thought I was just writing about fish.'

Overview

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Bay Country chronicles changes in the lands and waters of the Chesapeake Bay. During the past century, human influence has decreased the base-line populations of geese, eels, crabs, and trees. As Horton points out, we no longer miss these living things be cause they have never been abundant in our lifetimesa tragedy of both ecological and human dimensions. His lyrical and understandable prose will convince doubters of the need to consider the diverse consequences of their actions. Horton, a native of the Chesapeake's Eastern Shore, has been an environmental writer for the Baltimore Sun. Highly recommended. James R. Karr, Smithsonian Tropi cal Research Inst., Balboa, Panama
