Now, in an updated paperback edition, the author provides a new afterward that offers current information on the status of the Chesapeake today-its imperiled but resilient ecosystem and increasingly scarce resources. Nature enthusiasts and fans of fine literature alike will find Beautiful Swimmers a timeless and enchanting study, in the tradition of Rachel Carson's Edge of the Sea and Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. In these pages we are immersed not only in the world of the Chesapeake's most intriguing crustaceans, but in the winds and tides of the Bay itself and the struggles of the watermen who make their living in pursuit of the succulent, pugnacious blue crab. SC, 304 pages.
