8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Sandra Flower on July 9, 2007
Ian Plant's photos are marvelous. His wildlife shots are amazing and spiritual, in some cases. His landscape shots give one the emotonal feeling of truly wanting to explore the bay. I found the book very compelling, enjoyed the essays by Tom Horton, and hope this book helps preserve the bay.

Tom Horton takes you to the Chesapeake Bay in a way that you almost don't have to go there yourself to know it. You can almost taste the salt air and feel the salt-marsh ooze between your toes.
