Bayshore Summer: Finding Eden in a Most Unlikely Place - gebunden oder broschiert

ISBN: 054719563X

[SR: 1233401], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780547195636], Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Book, [PU: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt], Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Bypassed by time and “Joisey” Shore–bound vacationers, the marshes and forests of the Bayshore constitute one of North America’s last great undiscovered wild places. Sixty million people live within a tank of gas of this environmentally rich and diverse place, yet most miss out on the region’s amazing spectacles. Bayshore Summer is a bridge that links the rest of the world to this timeless land. Pete Dunne acts as ambassador and tour guide, following Bayshore residents as they haul crab traps, bale salt hay, stake out deer poachers, and pick tomatoes. He examines and appreciates this fertile land, how we live off it and how all of us connect with it. From the shorebirds that converge by the thousands to gorge themselves on crab eggs to the delicious fresh produce that earned the Garden State its nickname, from the line-dropping expectancy of party boat fishing to the waterman who lives on a first-name basis with the birds around his boat, Bayshore Summer is at once an expansive and intimate portrait of a special place, a secret Eden, and a glimpse into a world as rich as summer and enduring as a whispere, Product Description Bypassed by time and "Joisey" Shore-bound vacationers, the marshes and forests of the Bayshore constitute one of North America's last great undiscovered wild places.

Amazon Exclusive: A Letter from Pete Dunne, Author of Bayshore Summer Dear Amazon Reader, There was a time--and it wasn't long ago--that the Dicks and Janes and Sallys of this world went out and soaked their sneakers in streams, gleefully blackened the legs of fresh-washed jeans on rough-barked trees, and dared each other to see how many eggs were in the nest at the end of that topmost limb. Engaging the natural world was as natural as natural could be. Then they grew up. Lived busy lives. The wonder and discovery they knew as kids became a memory, not their reality--which is sad, and a trend that as a thirty-year member of the New Jersey Audubon Society staff I have battled all my adult life. Bayshore Summer, like its predecessor, Prairie Spring, is, on the one hand, an extension of my lifelong effort to bring people and the natural world together. It's also a metaphorical knock on the door from an old friend; an invitation to come out and play in a world that hasn't gone anywhere but out of fashion in many people's minds. I've lived on New Jersey's Delaware Bayshore for over twenty years, and I'm still discovering natural spectacles here in one of the last, great wild places along the Atlantic seaboard. This coastal region has survived people and evolved for four hundred years, and while in many respects the forests and marshes and communities seem immune from time, I'd encourage visitors to visit soon. Time has a way of catching up on special places, just as it transforms children who once went out every summer day seeking discovery and wonder. With luck, readers will rekindle memories of wet sneakers, bark-blackened jeans, and maybe the urge to go out, once again, and engage a world where wonder and discovery lie at the fingertips of an outstretched hand. -Pete Dunne (Photo © Linda Dunne) Amazon Exclusive: Photographs to Accompany Bayshore Summer (Click on images to enlarge) Photos © Linda Dunne In late summer, swallows gather in the marshes of Delaware Bay Baymen Captain Tom Pew and John Burens catching Atlantic blue crabs New Jersey's wild and scenic Maurice River Linda Dunne, surrounded by a fraction of the migrating shorebirds An adult osprey by his presence posting notice that this territory is his , 14278871, State & Local, 4853, United States, 4808, Americas, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13529, Ecology, 13469, Biological Sciences, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 16311131, Natural History, 14452, Nature & Ecology, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 290062, Conservation, 52215011, Energy, 14452, Nature & Ecology, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 290441, Environmentalism, 14459, Environment, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 17213, Ecotourism, 17205, Specialty Travel, 27, Travel, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 17029, Travel Writing, 27, Travel, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

Chapter 1 Sex and Gluttony on Delaware Bay Before my hand found third gear, New Jersey's famed pine barrens had closed in on both sides of the road, buffering us from the Wawa and its mayhem. Much of eastern Cumberland County falls within the boundaries of the Pinelands National Reserve-a 1.1-million-acre tract of mostly forested land. Not a park or refuge where human endeavors are strictly proscribed, the reserve is a jurisdictional hybrid according protection to areas of high environmental or cultural value and permitting compatible development in others. Created by Congress in 1978, operating under a comprehensive management plan, and governed by the representatively diverse Pinelands Commission, both the reserve and the plan are variously acclaimed and decried. People who want to see the environmental and cultural heritage of the region preserved generally applaud it. Large property owners and developers whose ambitions might undermine environmentally sensitive areas commonly fault it. Like it or not, what is certain is that this creative initiative resulted in the protection of 22 percent of the most crowded state in the Union and preserved the largest body of open space between Boston and Richmond. Those shorebound travelers taking old Route 47, as Linda and I had done, are tracing the southern boundary of the preserve. For some reason, the Delaware Bayshore was not placed beneath the umbrella of the reserve's protection. Its heritage and biological riches have, thus far, been preserved largely as a result of good fortune. We passed several turnoffs, marked by weathered signs, directing travelers to communities with names that skirt all but local recognition-names such as Dorchester (pronounced, in the syllable-compressing dialect of the bayshore, DOR-ster), Leesburg, and Heislerville. While few travelers ever do turn off to explore these obscure towns, those who do wander into a New Jersey that is alien to nine out of ten residents of the state. A land of black ducks and blue mud. Tight-knit communities composed of cedar-roofed and dowel-framed houses that hark back to a time when two-masted schooners and two-story homes were built by the same men. Pickup trucks, not cars, occupy most of the driveways. Cats keep watch from behind age-rippled glass, and dogs, slumbering on porches, stir only at the sound of unfamiliar feet. And when you happen, as is certain you will, upon one of the old church cemeteries that command the high ground, you'll find the gate unlocked and age-blackened stones bearing the same names as the mailboxes you just passed. Until recently, saying you lived on the bayshore was as good as saying you were born on the bayshore. This means you have roots that go back very far. Not every road off Route 47 delivers as promised. Travelers bold enough to follow now rusting highway signs to Moores Beach and Thompsons Beach are headed for consternation. In two decades, these bayside communities went from shore towns to g Nature Nature eBook, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
