Summary
The four-hundred-year saga of America's Eastern Shore, from its Native American roots to the present. The central scene of Michener's historical novel is that section of Maryland's Eastern shore, hardly more than 10 miles square. To this point come the founders of families that will dominate the story. A panoramic narrative of human and animal life on Maryland's Eastern Shore focuses on a ten-square-mile area at the mouth of the Choptank River and the families that settle there, from 1583 to the present
Summary
The Eastern shore of Maryland and Virginia evolves from prehistory into the 20th century and influences the lives of Native Americans, African Americans, and Irish immigrants who live there
