These are sad times for Smith Islanders. Their island is eroding away. Many young Islanders are leaving because they see no future here. Retired crabber and oysterman Elmer L. Evans, 70, sighed and echoed the sentiments of the people of this tiny remote Chesapeake Bay island. "It's a shame. Smith Island has been inhabited 330 years, since 1657, mostly by the same families. Now the island is dying, coming to an end. It really is a pity." The end isn't imminent.
