The Other Shore (in progress under contract to Rutgers University Press)

When people speak of "The Jersey Shore," they mean the 127 miles of beaches on the eastern side of the state. But there is another shore on the western side of the state equally if not more appealing, yet largely ignored: that of the Delaware River. This book will explore the landscape, towns, culture and people that occupy the bank of what was voted America's most beautiful and cleanest river in 2020 and follow its New Jersey coast from the state's New York border all the way to where it, first as an estuary then a bay, swings around under New Jersey and meets the Atlantic at Cape May.
