About the Author


Author David Berry, a writer and longtime sailor, has spent many hours volunteering on the skipjack Martha Lewis. He has selected images that capture the simple, elegant functionality of these historic sailing vessels and remind readers that a key part of Maryland’s past is disappearing. Numerous efforts are in place to save the remaining skipjacks and to reestablish the oyster in the Chesapeake Bay, but the days captured in these photographs are gone forever.
