The Long Beach Island Reader



More than sixty fascinating essays and stories, spanning the period between the 1930s and 2000, capture the essence of Long Beach Island. This lovingly-edited anthology includes stories of childhood at the beach, travel to the Shore, summer beach parties, summer jobs, fishing, sailing, surfing, nightlife, storms, and beachcombing. There are accounts of the whale blown up on the beach, shark attacks, a sea serpent and an aquaplane; natural history including terrapins, horseshoe crabs, and preservation. More textured and reflective than simple accounts of life and fun at the beach, the stories were chosen from several thousand published over five decades in the weekly Beachcomber.
