Originally published in hardback, this book about the Chesapeake is now available in paperback from Johns Hopkins. The author, Tom Horton, is a native of Maryland's Eastern Shore, and has written about the environment for the past 15 years in the Baltimore Sun. His stories of oysters and sea nettle, elms and rivers, barrier islands and blue crabs, farmers and watermen, always reach beyond the local to the most universal of subjects.
