By June Methot: A chronology of the three and a quarter centuries since the first English settlement, lavishly illustrated with almost 500 original drawings, prints (many rare, some never previously republished), watercolors, paintings, maps and photographs, both old and contemporary. Here are the real stories of the rugged and resilient people who first settled the Jersey Shore. It contains some fascinating details of how they and lived and some of the unusual problems they faced—such as piracy, political differences with English officialdom, as well as the beginnings of beach resorts.
