Description: This book covers the area of New Jersey touched by the sea, embracing the sea islands, the inlets, the bays, and the salt marshes. Here the sea has always been the shaping force. Despite the fact that In modern times thousands in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania have become closely acquainted with the Jersey shore, the history of the region has in general passed them by. Even those who live at the shore all year around haven't had time to become deeply rooted in the region. And few of the many summer visitors stay long enough to learn anything about the influence of the past upon the present. This book is a condensation and revision of the author's "The Jersey Shore," published in two volumes in 1953 with full footnotes. It is his hope that it will provide a readable, enlightening, and diverting experience for those who would like to know more about the Jersey shore, and the origins and development of the greatest single industry in the state: the shore resort business.
