This book tells a lot about the politics of the seafood industry here in md which I thought was particularly interesting.

Another good ,politically, informative book is Chesapeake Bay Blues. Science, politics and the struggle to save the Bay. I have read a few of Tom Horton and David Harp Books. Bay Country ,The Great Marsh, Island Out of  Time, Turning the Tide ,Chesapeake Bay of light  and The Nanticoke. These are all very good books. With David Harps photography and Tom Horton's  adventures  these books will not disappoint. Some other books  I have by other writers that are good are The Barrier Islands ,The Disappearing Islands Of The Chesapeake and   Totch  A life in the Everglades. This book is about how Totch Brown lived, fished, hunted and survived in the the Everglades before it was a park and before air conditioning. This makes the life of a Chesapeake waterman seem docile.
