This pictorial introduction to the Lower Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay focuses on selected individuals to show how people and nature are dealing with forces of change. Successive chapters portray the traditional life of watermen and crab fishing, altered by economic and ecological forces; examine marshland and riverine ecosystems; present boat builders who exemplify the pride of craft that is succumbing to homogenization; and describe development projects that conflict with preservation in lifestyles, customs, and environment.
