Chesapeake is one of the best novels that James Michener wrote, IMO, and I have read ALL of his books.

It is haunting in a way of the countryside that only a country person can appreciate. Michener gives life not only to his human characters, but also to the animal life that populate this novel.

Michener's books for the most part are written on a grand scale as historical fiction. He gives the reader a portrait of how things might have been, not how things really were.
