Recommends it for: marylanders/dreamers
really good and easy read. it is a romantic look at life on the chesapeake bay by someone that infiltrated the livelihood...documentary style. it actually made me want to quit everything and become a oyster/crab fella. then i realized...that is a tough life. although the author never states that the life is an easy one, he sheds a poetic light on the lifestyle with his documentation and will make you appreciate the beauty of the bay, and the people that live off of it.
