Description
Despite rampant development and heavy agricultural use in the region, the Nanticoke remains one of the most pristine rivers of the Chesapeake Bay watershed, looking much as it did when Captain John Smith found it 400 years ago. Its meandering waters and fertile wetlands sustain a remarkable diversity of life, and the Nanticoke is home to beavers, otters, woodpeckers, freshwater fish and shellfish, watergrasses, bog orchids, bald cypresses, and the rare Atlantic white cedar. In this book by former Baltimore Sun staff photographer David Harp and John Burroughs Medal–winning journalist Tom Horton, more than a hundred evocative color photographs reveal unspoiled waters rarely witnessed except by Native Americans, tugboat captains, naturalists, and commercial waterman.

"Horton mixes poetic sensibility, profound knowledge and hard-edged realism in his descriptions of one of Chesapeake Country's best-preserved rivers. Harp's photographs make you want to set out in a canoe."—Bay Weekly
