Overview

Through a variety of literary genres—half of which consists of poetry, the other half a mixture of short stories, essays, dialogues, letters, even lists—this book digs into the human interface with one of the largest estuaries in the world. The Bay does not represent an escape to Nature. It has always been an integral part of modern development—witness Baltimore and Washington. Man cannot help but be influenced and changed. So can that body of water. Includes Readers Guide.
