Writers LIVE! Ric Cottom: Your Maryland: Little Known Histories from the Shores of the Chesapeake to the Foothills of the Allegheny Mountains

Enoch Pratt Free Library

Since 2002, when he first delivered his now-classic radio segment on WYPR, ‘Your Maryland’, Ric Cottom has narrated hundreds of little-known human interest stories. Collected here are 72 of his favorite on-air pieces, enhanced with beautiful papercut illustrations by Baltimore artist Annie Howe. From accused witches and the murderous career of gunsmith John Dandy in the earliest days of the colony through tales of Johnny U and the greatest game ever played, Your Maryland covers nearly four centuries of the Free State’s heroes and scoundrels.


Ric Cottom is the host of WYPR’s Your Maryland. As Robert I. Cottom, Jr., he is the co-author of A House Divided: Maryland in the Civil War and the co-editor of After Chancellorsville, Letters from the Heart: The Civil War Letters of Private Walter G. Dunn & Emma Randolph.
