    “In the first book of its kind, photographer Paul Yoder captures architectural highlights of 116 churches on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.  From complex to simple, almost whimsical designs, these churches reveal their individuality with delightful surprises.  The stories of ecclesiastical landmarks that are visual treasures in nine counties are told through his 515 pictures.  Yoder offers an easy to read, one-stop reference for architecture styles that defined Shore communities from the late 1600’s through the early 1900’s.  Long overdue!”

    “As a member of St. Andrew’s Chapel in Sudlersville, I may have been compelled to pick up Paul Yoder’s Maryland’s Eastern Shore Historic Churches.  But as an avid student of local history and lifelong Marylander, my soul was fed by Paul’s images capturing the juxtaposition of humble majesty in these fascinating and varied structures.”
