Reviews

Quick, vivid reading which reeks with salty reality... Quite simply, this is the best book I've ever read about the daily life of Chesapeake Bay watermen.

- Earl Arnett - Maryland Magazine

Gives the reader a strong sense that the heroism of early America did not pass away sometime around 1875 but flourishes right now.
