About the author (2001)

William H. Shellenberger has cruised the Chesapeake Bay with his family for more than a quarter century and has made the study of its numerous gunkholes his life's work. He's been into nearly every one of them, run aground finding shortcuts you can take and the ones you can't, and found the spots where you can hide from the crowds or become part of them. Most any weekend from early spring to late fall, Bill and his family can be found nosing their Westerly Berwick up yet another unexplored creek or inlet, their Tibetan Terriers pointing out a likely place to land.
