[EAN: 9780738567846], [PU: Arcadia Publishing], History|United States|State & Local|General, This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Title: Accomack County: Book Review Author: Staff Writer Publisher: Delmarva Quarterly Date: Autumn 2009 Curtis Badger combines forces with his son, Tom, to complete a masterful visual history of Accomack County, published by Arcadia Publishing. And like most books in the Images of America series there's something in "Accomack County" for everyone: natural disaster pics, crime photography, and pictures of beach lovers from years gone by. The Badgers' sharp prose is an added treat to the rich collection of images inside the slim volume. One is reminded of the photographs from the '20s how much of the Eastern Shore was zigzagged with dirt roads and traveled by horse drawn carriages. The images of hog killing during World War II, the Ash Wednesday storm, the winter of 1977 when the creeks froze and the ice built up around Parramore Island Coast Guard Station, and the now vanished barrel-making are some of the highlights the Badgers have dug up. One of the best is of stern barrel-chested hunters lined up outside a private bunting club that once made its home on the barrier islands. President Grover Cleveland is among them, eager to pluck the plentiful waterfowl from the air as a musician might pluck notes from an instrument. In days of green tourism, and diminishing interest in the ways of watermen and farmers, "Accomack County" reminds us that once there were no other options than to till the earth and live off the waters and land about us. We found our pleasure more in natural settings rather than in electronics and entertainments, and "as long as we take care of [the land and the sea] we will be okay."

Details of the book
Accomack County

Accomack County's history revolves around two elements: the land and the sea. The land is fertile, capable of producing great bounty, and Accomack is surrounded by the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. So Accomack has enjoyed two advantages: an ability to produce food and the means of getting it to market. Public wharves were once located on many creeks where farmers would bring crops for market. Then, in 1884, the railroad came through. The railroad created new towns--Parksley, Onley, Keller, Tasley, and Painter--and it meant the demise of the numerous public wharves. Today most of these old gathering places exist only as names on a map and perhaps a collection of twisted pilings at the water's edge, the last tangible evidence of a time in our history long past.
