Product Description

Chesapeake People looks into the lives of a variety of intriguing citizens who call the Eastern Shore home. Among them are scientists, watermen, an educator, a world class sailor and a minister. Their fascinating stories are not only entertaining but offer insight into a special lifestyle.

Except for four years in the military, Don Parks has lived on the Eastern Shore of Maryland his entire life. The son of a waterman, Parks began to seriously explore the Chesapeake Bay and its people following his retirement. The Chesapeake has always been one of his passions.

Praise for Chesapeake People

“From his literary kitchen Don Parks serves a savory oyster stew of memorable characters who enrich, and whose lives are enriched, by their comings and goings on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay.”  —  Jack O’Brien. Retired editor of weeklies in Dorchester, Caroline, Queen Anne’s and Talbot Counties. A former AP writer, who also served as copy editor for theBaltimore Sun.

” Don Parks brings the Chesapeake region to life through the words of people who love this beautiful and isolated part of the world. Using personal stories that range from the voyages of a world-class sailor to the techniques of an international muskrat-skinning champion, Parks takes his readers on a journey to a land that forgot time. The stories are told with the perfect combination of sea-salt tang and tide-marsh scent to make Chesapeake People a delightful and insightful read.” — Dick Cooper. Pulitzer Prize-Winning journalist and author of East of the Chesapeake: Skipjacks, Flyboys and Sailors, True Tales of the Eastern Shore.
