Book - 1999
Rate this:
This latest work from the National Book Award nominee (Battlefield) alternates the personal with the historical in an anecdotal & lyrical exploration of the Chesapeake Bay, its surroundings, & its history. On subjects as diverse as canoe sailing, crewing on a tugboat, how not to build a garage, & how it feels to be a landscaper painter whose work is rejected by his own community, the author creates a vivid picture of a time & place.
