What People are saying about this

Gretchen Parker
"When Jennings Evans tells his stories, in gentle tones and words that sound like they�ve been rounded over the top, it puts you right in the marshes of Smith Island."
Associated Press
Baltimore Magazine
"Tucked inside a spiral-bound booklet of historical information and vintage photographs, the discs show that, culturally, the Eastern Shore qualifies as a destination in its own right."
