The NewJersey Pine Barrons are a legendary place with a fascinating history, rich in mystery, adventure and romance. Across its great green canvas flash pirates and plunder, patriots and villians, boom towns and ghost towns, brawling millworkers and firebreathing preachers, witches, wizards and, of course, the Jersey Devil. Today, all that remains of the colonial settlements and once-thriving, boisterous mill towns are occasional bits of crumbling rubble in thje deep woods-and a wealth of stories about the past that have been handed down from one Pine Barrons family to the next. This book is a delightful grab bag collection of just such lore, accumulated by the author in the course of a lifetime's fascination with the Pine Barrons. A number of these yarns are pretty good local history, some are of the strictly-for-fun-variety, and some are read late at night with the lights turned low, and the doors and windows securely bolted!
