Chesapeake Gold is the type of book you read while sitting in an Adirondack chair overlooking the water on a crisp autumn afternoon. Accompanied by rich illustrations, Chesapeake Gold offers a glimpse into the lives of Chesapeake oystermen, as they struggle to manage and maintain their livelihoods and culture in the face of declining oyster populations in the Chesapeake Bay. Author Susan Brait shares her experiences of working alongside men and women who make their living on the Chesapeake.
