Internet Book WatchRobert Jahn's Down Barnegat Bay: A Nor'easter Midnight Reader is a wonderfully illustrated maritime history showcasing the New Jersey shore during the Age of Sail. Originally published in 1980, this substantially revised and expanded edition of Jahn's informative and engaging text is superbly illustrated with more than 177 sepia illustrations (including 75 new images and nine maps). Down Barnegat Bay is a fascinating historical excursion covering Native Americans, European exploration and settlement, storms, pirates, ships, shipwrecks, the Life Saving Service, fishing, whaling, as well as the social life and customs of Barnegat baymen and the inevitable development of the region as a seaside tourism destination. Superbly written and presented regional history!
