Madeline Gardina's new book Hooves on the Shore; The Lure of Chincoteague starts with the following:
"Imagine a place, still quiet and calm, where life does not pass you by unnoticed. A leisurely stroll to the carnival grounds, a bike ride through the woods and marsh to the ocean, a farmer's market full of local fanfare including oysters, clams, vegetables, fruit and crafts, an afternoon crabbing and fishing for dinner or kayaking past ponies feeding by the bay or even a rocket launch in all its glory, heading to a destination far from the Earth's reach. This is Chincoteague."
Madeline has created a book of images that capture the spirit of the Islands. If you're looking for the perfect 'take-home' book to remember your visit, this may be it. Come meet Madeline and pick up a signed copy during Pony Swim Week.
