This book takes you into the lives of everyday people who fish crab on the Chesapeake. It is a funny, warm and fascinating look at at a quickly disappearing niche in a nation preoccupied with rush hour and the latest technology.Illustrated with beautiful black and white drawings.

Full Title is: Beautiful Swimmers (Watermen, Crabs and the Chesapeake Bay)- about the pugnacious, succulent Atlantic blue crab and its environment. The people who inhabit that environment, their customs, places, and ways. Very detailed, very informative.
