Chesapeake: A Novel

Chesapeake - James A. Michener This is almost- or maybe *as* good as his earlier work "Hawaii". Michener again sticks with his winning formula of starting at the dawn of history, and taking the reader through several thousand years of history- this time in the Chesapeake Bay area of Maryland. Michener is a captivating and gifted storyteller, and creates not one or two, but dozens of memorable characters. A thoroughly enjoyable read.
