Considered to be the saltiest shore in England, the Blackwater provides the background for John Leather's story of Essex seafaring. It is an accurate study of men and craft that have sailed form the small communities beside this broad estuary and river. It is a varied story where fishermen, bargemen, boatbuilders, sailmakers, wildfowlers and often smugglers join the sailing smacks and bages, brigs, bumkins and gunpunts in this workaday watery world.

Page’s panoramic and romanticized portrayal of Jonathan’s new, cious life strongly resembles the work of canvas landscape painter John Constable, whose The Hay Wain and Stratford Mill capture the same essence of nature as Page’s depiction of the flowering apricot trees, budding plum trees, and ponies walking in the yard.
