Just ten years after the Civil War fell silent, we entertained our first guests.  In those wonderfully Victorian days, enormous paddle wheelers crossed the Chesapeake Bay to bring ladies and gentlemen seeking relief from the heat and humidity of Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York. This was know as "Summering on Tilghman"...and Captain Levin Harrison's reputation for hospitality, fine sportfishing, and fabulous country cooking quickly spread.
Excerpt from Harrison's Chesapeake House website

"Helen Chappell - native of Dorchester County, resident of Bellevue, in Talbot County, author of more than 20 or more romance novels - has written 40 short tales that satirize the mores and manners of some of her Eastern Shore brothers and sisters... Chappell's stories get high marks all around... Her three dozen line drawings in Oysterback Tales are perfect illustrations." - Baltimore City Paper
