Following the Watermen:
An Anthropologist Arrives on Deal Island [4:00]
Do the watermen of the Chesapeake Bay share similar values? A common culture? A collective worldview? Is their outlook rooted in their work, their sense of community, their sense of place? Anthropologist Michael Paolisso took those questions to Deal Island, an isolated enclave along Maryland's Eastern Shore. Here he talks about his work, and watermen Robert Daniels, Dickie Webster and Art Daniels talk about their lives.
