Chesapeake: Exploring the Water Trail of Captain John Smith

Chesapeake: Exploring the Water Trail of Captain John

This richly illustrated, informative, and inviting book intertwines two fascinating stories of discovery. The first, among the earliest classics of New World adventure, recounts Captain John Smith's exploration of Chesapeake Bay 400 years ago; the second revisits this stunning landscape as it is today—both to showcase its still-unspoiled splendors and to issue a timely warning of looming threats to its vibrant but fragile ecology.Dozens of dazzling full-color contemporary photographs evoke the Chesapeake spirit in all its many moods, while a wonderfully wide-ranging selection of archival images span the four centuries since John Smith first sailed, rowed, and wandered its woods and waterways, mapping the wilderness shores of an untamed America.The author, a veteran naturalist at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, has spent decades leading tours and teaching classes about the region. An ideal guide, he shares both his delight in the Bay's glorious diversity and his deep concern for its future. In addition, his unique blend of experience, environmental sensitivity, and historical expertise offers modern visitors a rare opportunity to discover the Chesapeake as Smith did so long ago, leaving beaten paths and familiar waters behind to learn why Congress will soon designate it as the fi...

Chesapeake Bay Steamers (MD and VA) (Images of America)

Chesapeake Bay Steamers (MD and

Since English settlers first touched the shore of the new country in 1607, the Chesapeake Bay has been a multifaceted engine of American history and commerce. The body of inland tidal water between the largest bay cities, Norfolk and Baltimore, was large enough to be the setting of adventure and close enough to allow smaller towns and cities to grow up on its shores. The common community came to life with the technologies of steamboats that could cover the long distances between North and South relatively quickly. Steamers filled in the nooks and crannies of the bay's geography, and by the mid-19th century, the skies over the bay were lined with dark, waterborne contrails in all directions. Strong machines built to master rough seas while moving gently enough for small harbors, many steamers had life spans that crossed whole eras in American history. Some were drafted into distinguished service in domestic and foreign wars. The steamers plied the bay and its rivers with a feminine grace well into the mid-20th century, when they were overtaken by the rush of modern times. The last steamer sailed into oblivion exactly 150 years after the first of them appeared in Baltimore harbor.

2018 Guide to Boating Potomac River

2018 Guide to Boating Potomac

The Potomac River is not only the Chesapeake Bay's largest river, it is also the nation's most historic river. It was the birthplace of the American Revolution and home to many of the country's early presidents and political leaders. Today it remains an extraordinary river to cruise, kayak and traveler-boat. The Potomac Guide begins the remarkably beautiful trip downriver in Washington D.C., where boaters can stay on Washington Channel at the brand new Wharf, within walking distance of the National Mall and its museums, the Metro and even a grocery store. It moves on to Alexandria and then National Harbor Marina, with its National Wheel and new MGM Grand Casino, Mount Vernon, home of George Washington, comes next, and the guide explains how and where to dock or anchor. From there, the Guide describes every creek, bay and tributary along the way downriver, pointing out good cruising spots, marinas and places to put in boats and kayaks.
