Description
English explorer and Virginia Colony founder Captain John Smith (1580-1631) conducted a number of sailing expeditions around the Chesapeake Bay. Put together by Rountree (emerita, anthropology, Old Dominion U.), Clark (executive director, Tri-County Council of Southern Maryland), and Mountford (an ecologist and environmental historian) on the occasion of the 400th anniversary of those voyages, this book aims to reconstruct the historical, scientific, archaeological, and ecological realities of the Chesapeake at the time of Smith's explorations. It provides narrative accounts of the voyages themselves, discusses the peoples that lived around the bay and their livelihoods, and gives a picture of the environment and human-environment relations in the region.
