Inhaltsangabe: One hundred years ago, Chesapeake Bay swarmed with one thousand unique vessels. They were called Skipjacks, powered by the wind and used to harvest as many as ten million oysters in a single season. The harvest today has fallen to less than one-tenth of that. And the Skipjack is almost extinct, with no more than ten still used in dredging for oysters.
The history of the Skipjacks, the men who sailed them, and the Chesapeake oyster industry are documented in this large 142-page coffee table book with more than 170 color and many black-and-white photographs, perhaps the largest private collection of Skipjack photos in existence.
Über den Autor: In 1983, the annual Skipjack races took place at Sandy Point State Park, near Annapolis, MD, Doug Stephens attended the races for the first time--as a crew member aboard the Caleb. Although the vessel and its crew didn't win, the experience affected Stephens profoundly. He began photographing the vessels, the watermen who sailed in them, their owners, the surrounding rivers, marshes, marinas, wildlife.
Doug lives with his wife, Nancy, in Sharptown, MD, on the bank of the Nanticoke River.
