Carroll s Island is one of many places along the ChesapeakeBay where vibrant stories of dogs, decoys, guns and waterfowl resonate up from the shoreline. The stories from Carroll s Island Ducking Club, which was founded in the mid-nineteenth century, offer special insights about the Chesapeake Bay s waterfowling heritage. In this warm, informative book, C. John Sullivan Jr., one of the nation sleading decoy collectors and scholars, documents the development of the Chesapeake Bay retriever and how gunners once devised decoys and new firearms and enjoyed the bounty of the Chesapeake Bay. Eventually Carroll s Island Ducking Club would disappear, but its legacy can still be seen today in the role members played in establishing the Chesapeake Bay retriever as Maryland s state dog."
