"Michener's most ambitious work of fiction in theme and scope."
THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER
Once again James A. Michener brings history to life with this 400-year saga of America's great bay and its Eastern Shore. Following Edmund Steed and his remarkable family, who parallel the settling and forming of the nation, CHESAPEAKE sweeps readers from the unspoiled world of the Native Americans to the voyages of Captain John Smith, the Revolutionary War, and right up to modern times.
Clean, solid copy in jacket with light edgewear plus one 2-inch shallow scoop at its top edge.
