Was there really a secret society of watermen who united in the 1880s to protect their rights and guard against intruders to their Kent Island, Maryland waters? Why was their code of anonymity so important? Will anyone now dare expose them and their hidden, unorthodox and definitely, mysterious ways? History and fiction always come alive when the right characters of Kent Island are involved – they are indeed in Callinectes Sapidus! A portion of each book will again be donated to The Kent Island Heritage Society.
