Water's Way is a stunningly photographed, and exquisitely written glimpse of life in the Chesapeake region. The book celebrates beauty, both in the natural and human worlds. Author Tom Horton's essays are insightful, humorous, and well-crafted. His words flow like the many creeks and rivers that he describes on the Delmarva peninsula. Dave Harp's photography defines the people, animals, and landscape in such concert with Horton's words that the book should be considered the National Geographic of the Eastern Shore. This a worthy addition to anyone's coffee table.

It was a gift for friends who lives on the bay. It was a big hit as they were able to identify so many of the points noted. They don't know that I almost kept it. Growing up in the bay is a wonderful experience and they are thrilled to have such a record of the tidewater we knew.

This book is a lovely accent piece for the guest bedroom in my home on the Chesapeake. I have found that many of my overnight guests comment on the beautiful photos as well as Horton's vivid description of the Chesapeake Bay.

This is a fun history of the Chesapeake and it's people. It also was wonderfully illustrated showing the Bay in all it's splendor.
It was thoroughly enjoyable.
I received the book on time and in fine condition.

This book is well written and contains some beautiful photography. There's a lot of information on the bay, it's declining health and the hurdles that need to be overcome.

The photographs are breathtaking and the text invites you to slow down and be present to such overwhelming beauty.
