"Wild New Jersey brings the reader on a real-life safari through the Garden State's wildlife and natural wonders."-Tom Gilmore, President, New Jersey Audubon Society "Once you read this book, don't be surprised if you find yourself going straight to the nearest outdoor adventure, whether it be boating and birding the Meadowlands, hiking the Appalachian Trail, or exploring the Pinelands."-Captain Bill Sheehan, Hackensack Riverkeeper "What is wonderful about this book is it shows we still have wild places left even in the middle of our state's most developed urban areas. This book captures why we must preserve what's left of nature in New Jersey-and it reads like page-turner you can't put down."-Jeff Tittel, Director, New Jersey Sierra Club "Full of exciting tales about New Jersey, from the crowded urban areas to the most remote places of the state."-Joanna Burger, author of A Naturalist Along the New Jersey Shore The fastest animal on earth dive-bombs him from the skies. A young black bear bounds up a mountain trail a few yards away. Poisonous snakes swirl at his feet. A thousands bats careen past his head in a pitch-black roost. Pods of dolphins swim right past him by the scores. Who? Experienced naturalist David Wheeler. Where? Inside the pages of Wild New Jersey, of course. Count on this to be the first nature book to paint the extraordinary picture of New Jersey's unlikely wilderness in all its glory.
