        Rising Water, Vanishing Land; The Pamunkey Indian Reservation and Jamestown Island Posted on 13 May, by Ben Swenson This is the first in a six-part, yearlong series called Disappearing Virginia in Distinction Magazine. What emerges is the poignant tale of a world that has, quite nearly, gone by—and a leading-edge report on the coming fate of countless coastal communities. About the Author Journalist Earl Swift has written five books, including The Big Roads: The Untold Story of the Engineers, Visionaries, and Trailblazers Who Created the American.

      A BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR: wave by wave. It has lost two-thirds of its land since , and still its shoreline retreats by fifteen feet a year—meaning this storied place will likely succumb first among U.S. towns to the effects of climate change. Experts reckon that, barring heroic intervention by the federal government, islanders could be.   He accomplished those goals, for sure, but leaving it there would undersell Swift’s marvelous new book, Chesapeake Requiem: A Year with the Watermen on Vanishing Tangier : Stephanie Hanes.
