Charlie Ewers has been a high school teacher, farmer, carpenter, crab boat crewman and university professor, among other things.  He lives on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and teaches in the Environmental Studies Department of Salisbury University.  His photography has been featured at galleries in Maine, Oregon, and Maryland.


Phillip Hesser has taught in the US and Africa and served with the UNHCR and the Academy for Educational Development.  Most recently, he has taught at Salisbury University and Wor-Wic Community College. He now spends his time delving into the deep history of Delmarva and the Chesapeake Bay watershed and running the Dorchester marshes with his pint-sized retriever Marshall and hound Bayly. Indulging his interests at the intersection of landscape, life & livelihood, he wrote What a River Says: Exploring the Blackwater River and Refuge (Cambridge, MD: Friends of Blackwater, 2014) and co-wrote (with Charlie Ewers) Harriet Tubman’s Eastern Shore: The Old Home Is Not There (Columbia, SC: History Press, 2021).
