Clamming in Chincoteague and More ... (Paperback)
It introduces the history of Chincoteague Island and the past and present regional lifestyles of watermen, hunters, trappers, who with ingenuity and hard work took advantage of the unique and plentiful natural resources at hand: oysters, crabs, terrapins, wild game, and of course, clams, to develop a thriving community in what was once a remote and isolated place. It is a primer on how to harvest clams as recreational and gratifying outdoors activity for the young and old. It also documents a local commercial clam aquaculture operation. It includes many original and tasty recipes on how to enjoy clams at a convivial table. Fully illustrated in color.
