Hulbert Footner's literary career earned him international stature from the early 1900s until his death in 1944. Canadian by birth, he is honored in his adoptive state of Maryland, which he sensitively portrayed in historical narratives about its tidewater hardiness and spirit of toleration. His most enduring book, Rivers of the Eastern Shore, is beloved by those devoted to the character and culture of this bountiful region.
