The hardcover and trade paper books are being published simultaneously.From the Back Cover:
³These Barnegat tides are the sponges that wipe clean the slate of the beach. Each day a new record is made and each day it is wiped out: records from passing ships, an empty crate, broken spar or useless barrel.... Records, too, of many footprints - the lagging steps of happy lovers, the dimpled feet of joyous children; the tread of tramp, coast-guard or fisherman - all scoured clean when the merciful tide makes ebb.²
In this classic seashore novel, published in 1906, F. Hopkinson Smith captures an innocent time and place, but one in which human desire and weakness are all too familiar to us today. The story involves two sisters, sacrifice, and a web of deception that ultimately unravels - with tragic consequences. Out of print for more than half a century, the text and illustrations are carefully reprinted here in their original form.
³The Tides of Barnegat is a romance spanning a twenty year period from 1854 until 1874, with a highly melodramatic final chapter involving the newly organized U.S. Lifesaving Service in a tragic ship wreck....This scene of high drama comes as the resolution of a tightly constructed novel by a remarkable man.²
