Gilbert Byron

Gilbert Byron grew up on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, a waterman’s son like his young hero, Noah Marlin (whose coming of age stories are told in The Lord’s Oysters and Done Crabbin’). A schoolteacher for twenty-eight years, Byron began writing full time in 1957 and was the author of eleven books. His beloved classic, The Lord’s Oysters, is available in print from The Johns Hopkins University Press.
