Tunnelsby James F. Murray
Bored with the routines of normal adolescent existance, Jim and Tom began exploring the endless railroad system, which once occupied Jersey City and the surrounding Meadowlands.
Jimmy Murray and Tommy Lake grew up together in post war Jersey City. The experiences they shared, during the winter and spring of 1959, would cement their relationship for a lifetime.
Bored with the routines of normal adolescent existance, Jim and Tom began exploring the endless railroad system, which once occupied Jersey City and the surrounding Meadowlands. Their adventures became progressively more dangerous, often threatening their lives. Unconcerned, the young duo tempted fate regularly, while continuously seeking the ultimate adrenalin rush.
Matters reach a new level of intrigue when two young girls become involved in their escapades. Their love interests force a stabilizing effect on the two friends, but tranquility is short lived. Eventually, Tom clashes with a mysterous character called Hutchaneene, and Jim decides that revenge is in order.
Filled with incredible adventures, graphic details and tough dialogue, Tunnels will transport the reader into their past and trigger emotions not felt since their own adolescent years. Tunnels will be difficult to put down, especially for anyone who wants to re-ignite the spirit of adventure smoldering in their soul!
Tunnels includes twenty-two illustrations by North Carolina resident Carolyn DeMorest Serrano. Beautifully drawn, each illustration compliments the story by recapturing the "Lost World" of old Jersey City.
