For hundreds of years, settlers, sailors, and visitors of all kinds have been seduced by the mystique of Virginia's isolated Barrier Islands: Assateague, Chincoteague, Parramore, Smith's, Hog, Wallop's. Located along its Eastern Shore from the Maryland line to the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, these slender islands are some of the most dynamic landforms on earth and have long been mythologized by the people who have walked their shores. In Seashore Chronicles, Brooks Miles Barnes and Barry R. Truitt have gathered nearly two dozen travelers' accounts, along with a wealth of illustrations, to create a lively portrait of the Barrier Islands and their inhabitants. The writings of novelists, journalists, naturalists, hunters, the wealthy at play, and ordinary tourists capture the history of the islands from the 1650s to the 1990s.
