Shadow in the Pines
Usual marks. Blue cloth boards. Slight rippling to bottom page edges, but there is no mold or discoloration, otherwise good. The endpapers are maps of the area discribed in the book. The dust jacket has been professionally machine laminated. Set in WWII in New Jersey near Fort Dix. Fifteen year old Ted and his dog, a Shepherd Mongrel, help the U.S. Army round up a group of Nazi fifth-columnists. This book offers a unique look at South Jersey before it was heavily populated when Fort Dix was newly built. The story includes descriptions of the bog iron that was heavily mined there, the swamps that once predominated the area near Barnegat Inlet and other areas and the discovery of a Bog Iron master's house that was almost virtually untouched and left with all of it's expensive furniture after a small pox epidemic. A very interesting look at Jersey of old and the Pineys, people who lived out in the Piney forest/swamps. N° de réf. du libraire 6002445
