More About Choptank Odyssey by Tom Horton; David W. Harp
 
 
 
Overview
This book of more than 150 vibrant photographs and seven essays depicts the natural history, human history, science, and culture of the Delmarva peninsula's largest river. Explore the Choptank River--from its beginnings at upstream springs and farm ditches to its broad estuary below Cambridge, Maryland--discover its inhabitants, and learn about the impact of human activity on the natural environment. Generations of watermen and farmers, oystermen and oyster shuckers, crabbers and crab pickers, commercial fishermen, and a "turkler" are just a few of the folks you'll become acquainted with. Additionally, retired biologist and aquatic scientist Nick Carter, water quality scientist Tom Fisher, and oyster captain Wade Murphy offer tales of wonder and sacrifice while also warning us of the consequences of overpopulation and wasteful habits. Learn how we can restore the river, reduce pollution, conserve food and fuel, and protect this special place for all of time.
