Fair. 304 pages. Softcover. Reading copy. BIOLOGY. A complete natural history of the pugnacious, succulent Atlantic blue crab. It is also a study of the Chesapeake Bay, which provides more cabs for human consumption than any other body of water in the world, as well as a colorful report on the frank-talking watermen who make their living in the crab's pursuit. (Key Words: Biology, Blue Crabs, William W. Warner, Chesapeake Bay, Watermen).
This Pulitzer Prize winning book is always in demand at my bookstore in Worcester County, MD. Now when Chesapeake Blue Crabs are almost "endangered" it is more important than ever that people understand the delicate relationship between the people who harvest these wonderful succulent gifts from the bay and the ecosystem. This is a well written classic.
