Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While the coastline has changed both geographically and demographically, the lure of the shore has not…. Throughout, the entries remain as fresh as a sea breeze…. a fine chronicle of the development and discovery of the pleasures of the shore.
Booklist
Dozens of fascinating accounts.... Glimpses of 'everyday life,' as manners and mores evolve over the decades, make Shore Chronicles a real eye-opener..
Bergen Record
A captivating history of the shore and the people who made it.
New Jersey Monthly
A fascinating collection.
The Star-Ledger
Things have changed enormously along the Jersey Shore…. Charting the vastness of change over two and a half centuries is the signal achievement of Shore Chronicles…. Resonates with the minute details of our shared past.
