Publisher's Summary

Welcome aboard the third volume of The Chesapeake. This book, The Chesapeake: Oyster Buyboats, Ships & Steamed Crabs, spans the decades of the lives of our writers and the times of the Chesapeake Tidewater region from 1900 to the present time.

A first-person account of Chesapeake Bay bounty being harvested and provided to the national market is related by Capt. Joe Lore of Solomon's Island along with an interview with his father, Capt. J. C. Lore, Sr., from 50 years earlier.

Pepper Langley relished his days of establishing his own business after his high school commencement speaker told him he had a gold mine in his backyard.

The storytelling of Vi Englund is superb as she wrote vivid descriptions of going to sea. Get lost in the middle of roaring Atlantic storms in her ship's galley, and appreciate the majesty of the sea.

Mark Robbins provides entertaining tales of sailing, and Cap'n Larry Jarboe cannot be beat when it comes to knowing where the fish are hanging out and how to get them on your hook.

The Country Philosopher, Stephen Gore Uhler, got an elbow from another philosopher, Amos Arthur Holmes, but Steve wins overall for truthfulness - not a trait he learned from Jack Rue. Between Jack Rue and Fred McCoy, old tales are here for a new generation of tale-learners eager to find digital news of days of old.

Some of the old gold mines of The Solomon's Islander and The Chesapeake have been reopened, and we found Tony Marconi and Lenny Rudow hiding back in the caverns, grinning and eager to share their news and views with the world.

The Bill Burton State Park at Cambridge to the Cape Charles Harbor shown on the cover unite both shores of the Chesapeake to bring you, the listener, who may or may not dabble in U-boat fantasies and time warps, a complete view of the Tidewater region.
