Product Overview

For centuries, the "Chick" has blessed the Tidewater region of Virginia with life, even today in the face of deteriorating resources and dramatic environmental change. While an abundant ecosystem thrived in the water, a unique and culturally rich community that once dotted the Chick's riverbanks has dwindled near extinction. Author Jack Trammell spent the past three years on the river researching its incredible past and uncertain future. Drawing on old letters, photographs, and the still extant memories of lifelong watermen like Captains Bill Buck Jr. and Art Conway, he weaves a fascinating narrative
of this river community. Hop onboard and join the search for the record perch, the vanished villages, the proud Chickahominy Tribe, and the vestiges of the Civil War in this definitive and easy-to navigate history of a sacred Virginia tributary.
