144 pages, 120 col photos
Harp and Horton embarked on a canoe trip exploring, documenting, and photographing the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge in Dorchester County, Maryland. This volume is the story of a single crossing of the Blackwater's length, east to west. Separate sidebar essays discuss how the marsh functions as a refuge for migrating butterflies, the wetlands sustain a lonely trapper, and the bogs yield archaeological treasures - remnants of American Indian hunting forays and colonial boat building - to careful investigation.
The Great Marsh, An Intimate Journey into a Chesapeake Wetland creates the kind of wonderful synergy that happens when collaborators are at the top of their game. Harp has never made better, more varied images; Horton... compliments Dave's superb photography with text as graceful as it is informative. -- Frank Van Riper Washington Post Full of stunning images and insightful prose, it's the next best thing to paddling a canoe through the wild and wonderful area that has been dubbed 'The Chesapeake's Everglades.' Baltimore Magazine Exquisitely illustrated with photographs on nearly every page. Northeastern Naturalist
