Ellis, Carolyn. Fisher Folk: Two Communities on the Chesapeake Bay. Lexington, KY: University Press of Kentucky, 1986.
Annotations / Notes: A sociological case study of two traditional water-economy Chesapeake Bay communities, one in tidewater Virginia and the other on the islands of Maryland, both assigned pseudonyms in social science convention. Ellis contends that these isolated settlements retain distinctive elements of traditional culture, even as they increasingly are drawn into contact with and impacted by outside forces. Based on extensive field research conducted in the 1970s and early 1980s, this study examines family and kin, work, social organization, the role of religion, and mechanisms of social control. Ellis concludes with consideration of the prospects for the future in terms of preservation or change for traditional Chesapeake area communities.

Flexner, James Thomas. Steamboats Come True. Boston: Little, Brown, 1978.
Annotations / Notes: Did James Rumsey really invent the steamboat with his famous voyage in the Potomac River off Shepherdstown, Virginia on December 3, 1787? No. This somewhat disorganized but invigorating rendition of the race to be the steamboat's inventor sets things straight.
