My all Time Favorite Book

This is my all-time favorite book. It was given to me as a birthday present when it was first published in the 1970’s. I very much enjoyed reading it since it focused on my favorite fascinations "Blue Crabs and Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay". It’s a good read for someone that shares these interests. I was delighted to find it on Audible and happily revisited its fascinating collection of stories.

This book makes me home sick.

I grew up outside of Annapolis and remember when Annapolis was full of work boats named after wives and daughters. And one particular boat named JIMMY. I always thought it was a great opportunity for a double dedication. One story reminded me of a great day my brother and I caught a bushel of doublers in about an hour in his skiff on Eastern Bay.

This book reminds me of "The Big Oyster" but much more intimate.
