James once again brings history to life with this 400-year saga of America's great bay and its Eastern Shore. CHESAPEAKE sweeps readers from the unspoiled world of the Native Americans to the voyages of Captain John Smith, and right up to modern times. Escaping religious persecution in England in 1611, Edmund Steed flees his native England to find freedom in the New World by joining Captain Smith's brave journey to Virginia. Steed produces a remarkable family, whose lives parallel the settling and forming of the nation.
