Product description

Product Description

THE CHESAPEAKE: Six books in the series --Tales & Scales; Legends, Yarns, & Barnacles; Oyster Buyboats, Ships & Steamed Crabs; A Man Born to Hang Can't Drown; Country Cornpone Cornucopia; and Tidewater Sagas provides the shared memories of those who lived life to the fullest in the Chesapeake region.
This group of assembled scribes, poets and storytellers aspires to one goal and one goal only; to entertain the reader. Most have been working hard at achieving the summit of worldly acclaim for decades.
I asked each of them to contribute one or more penned pieces of prose at various times and, one by one, they agreed without any threats of undue duress. The youngest to join the group, at least he was younger than the rest, was Lenny Rudow. Lenny, while a student at St. Mary's College of Maryland, decided to enter our Fish Story contest, and in 1988, he won, opening up a long stint at THE CHESAPEAKE and leading to a career as a professional outdoor life writer.
That was thirty years ago. As for the oldest in the crowd, the first one to claim it, gets the nod. Jack Rue, Beth & Fred McCoy, John Peterson, Vi Englund, Pepper Langley, Capt. Joe Lore, Mel Brokenshire, Mark Robbins, Alan Brylawski and Patty Muchow have now been elevated to new roles past the Pearly Gates where they undoubtedly hold court with a Heavenly audience.
