About this book

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.
