Take an Intimate Journey Into a Chesapeake Wetland. Without paddling a single stroke. In The Great Marsh photographer David Harp and writer Tom Horton chronicle Maryland’s Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, eloquently showing and explaining how this threatened habitat is a refuge for migrating butterflies, a home for wetlands animals, and a trove of colonial archeological treasures.

America’s largest estuary, the Chesapeake Bay, nurtures more than 300 aquatic creatures, including the delectable blue crab. Harvested by the bushel and served steamed and spiced by the dozen, crab feasts (or pickin’s) are the pinnacle of gustatory pleasure for coastal residents of Maryland and Virginia. Recreate that sense of endless summer with this delectable shore-inspired collection, each inspired by holdings in our National Museum of American History’s costume collection or Division of Domestic Life.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
