Patapsco: Life Along Maryland's Historic River Valley
"Patapsco is a portait of a region as seen through the memories of its elders, the eyes of a photographer, and the sensibilities of a writer and oral historian. Through narrative and images, it reveals the connections between culture and place, between past and present. Also cloaked in the regional nature of Patapsco is a larger issue: disappearing American places. This book documents only one region, but it speaks for all those disppearing places and their people whose lives and times have not been documented. Our culture must not let unique American spaces fade to dust. We must find ways to preserve them, if only doing so in the pages of a book." --W. Ralph Eubanks, author of Ever Is a Long Time
