About this book

The seventeen rivers of the Eastern Shore flow quietly through the peninsula between the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic: the dark, narrow, deep-flowing Pocomoke, lined with gloomy cypress trees, the crooked, octopus-like Little Choptank; the Manokin, with the green salt marshes at its mouth. All flow through a land with varied and colourful historical associations.

Along the Eastern Shore, Puritans, Catholics, and Methodists, Virginians and Marylanders, Negros and whites, oyster fishermen, plantation owners, and townsmen settled and toiled and fought. They founded a culture that is both American and unique. Hulbert Footner, longtime resident of Maryland, who loved the Eastern Shore, wrote with mellow perspective and comprehension of all the facts of its story. In showing how diverse elements have been welded together by a common desire for freedom, he has added a distinctive tale to the stories of our rivers and the people who live along their banks.

Originally issued in the prestigious Rivers of America series, here are the beautifully crafted descriptions of the sluggish tidal rivers, never more than a few miles apart, which wind interminably through the rich, flat land of Maryland's Eastern Shore. On their banks stand some of the finest Georgian mansions in the Tidewater area. Footner's evocative text and the pen-and-ink sketches of Aaron Sopher make Rivers of the Eastern Shore one of the most enjoyable works in Maryland literature.
