Gilbert Byron

Gilbert Byron (1903-1991) grew up on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, a waterman’s son like his young fictional protagonist, Noah Marlin. A schoolteacher for twenty-eight years, he began writing full time in 1957 and was the author of eleven books. His beloved classic, The Lord’s Oysters, and its poignant sequel, Done Crabbin': Noah Leaves the River, are available in paperback from Johns Hopkins and as e-books from Secant Publishing.
