Chesapeake Ferries: A Waterborne Tradition, 1636–2000

Chesapeake Ferries: A Waterborne Tradition, 1636–2000

$ 34.00

A tribute to the region’s storied maritime past, Chesapeake Ferries looks at waterborne traffic from the earliest colonial days -- when all travelers in the region crossed rivers and bays by boat -- to the age of bridge building that forever changed the way people traveled. Beautifully illustrated with photographs and maps, Chesapeake Ferries portrays early ferries that loaded freight, animals, and passengers on small craft of every type; the 19th Century steamers that connected to networks of rail lines and the few modern operators who continue the tradition of water travel today.

2009, Clara Ann Simmons, 144 pp, Paperback
