Island Out of Time: A Memoir of Smith Island in the Chesapeake
Tom Horton. Smith Island is a marshy archipelago in mid-Chesapeake Bay, 9 miles from the mainland, home to 150 watermen & their families. This book is a portrait of a people who have remained intimately connected to the place in which they live, far past the time when “place” & “nature” any longer have immediate consequence to most of our lives. Horton recorded the traditions of oystering, crab catching, churchgoing, hunting & poaching, & the social rituals of these fiercely independent men & women. His story is about community & isolation, harvest & exploitation, & the risks & charms of being different from the surrounding world.
