"Michener's most ambitious work of fiction in theme and scope." THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER "Brilliantly written." ASSOCIATED PRESS 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.
James A. Michener manages to educate you a little while also creating interesting enough stories around the Chesapeake area of the United States of America. This is different to Centennial in that it doesn't go way back, and only covers a few hundred years. Not as interesting.
This is a pretty cool trick to pull enough. I wonder how many library chairs he wore out back then while working on it.
