John "Sonny" Robinson
Morning on Solomons
“In this book are gathered short stories relating my recollections of true events from my early years.”
So begins Sonny Robinson’s touching and personal collection of tales from his childhood and young adulthood on Solomons Island, a pipe-shaped piece of land located near the mouth of the Patuxent River where it empties into the Chesapeake Bay. Filled with tales of survival and innovation, tragedy and triumph, holiday celebrations and simple vignettes of everyday island life, this collection offers a unique glimpse into a bygone era, while giving hope and encouragement to the next generation to inherit the Bay.
