Taken from Chesapeake Country Second Edition:
“Beautifully photographed by Lucian Niemeyer and written by Eugene L. Meyer, Chesapeake Country tells the story of the bay in all its aspects; its waterscape and wildlife; its delicate ecology; its complex history as the seedbed of American liberty as well as American slavery; and its uncertain present, as the population of watermen who live by crabbing and oystering dwindles, and the number of newcomers seeking a respite from city life grows. The second edition includes a new introduction that discusses the future of the bay in the era of climate change and brings us up to date on the places and personalities of the Chesapeake.”
