    In the summer of 2002, writer/environmentalist Karen Tootelian began caring for the eighty-nine-year-old Chief of the Mattaponi Tribe, Webster Little Eagle Custalow. What began as her personal journals evolved into a book about their deep friendship and compassion for one another. Told in Ms. Tootelian’s poetic voice, this is also the story of the Mattaponi River, the battle Little Eagle began to save it from a reservoir, and about her own spiritual bond with this river.

    Explore an undersea wonderful in "The Sea Hunt." What’s the weirdest sea creature you’ve ever seen? Did it have fins, or tentacles, or a shell? Did it wriggle, or skitter, or stay still as a rock? Did it sting, or cling, or hide? Join young explorers Jack and Jenny as they hunt for strangeness in the Chesapeake Bay. Together you’ll discover just how weird, wild, and wonderful a saltwater world can be!

    "Pea Soup and the Seafood Feast" is a creative, maritime perspective on supper! Upset at the prospect of having pea soup for dinner, a young boy uses the techniques his grandfather taught him to collect seafood from the Chesapeake Bay as an alternative—but finds himself too enthralled by the lives of the creatures of the bay to keep anything he collects!
