The Eastern shore of Maryland is a peaceful and tranquil land unto itself, off the beaten and frenzied track of I-95 and the cities along it. From the top of the Chesapeake Bay to the Virginia border, Devereuxs photographs explore this region famous for its beauty, history, and culture, and its vast estuary wetlands that are so vital to the local economies dominated by farming, fishing, hunting and boating. Over 130 images propel the reader along a photographic journey along the coast: experience the sunrise over the water, and pass wildlife in marshes where boats appear to be sitting on the grasses. Visit picturesque colonial towns with their historic churches and houses, and fishing villages where harbors churn with crab boats. Pass by large farms planted with corn or wheat or smothered with snow geese in the winter. This book captures the magnificence of Maryland's Eastern shore in an informative, thoroughly engaging and beautiful way.
