Under a Gull¹s Wing is the first contemporary collection of poems and photographs about the Jersey Shore. The anthology covers quintessential shore subjects such as boardwalks and beaches; love and loss; legends, lore and famous landmarks, and takes readers on an evocative trip from the tip of Sandy Hook to Victorian Cape May. The contributors include some of the nation¹s best known poets ‹ Walt Whitman, John Ciardi, Robert Pinsky, A. R. Ammons and Maxine Kumin, among others.

Under A Gull¹s Wing presents all of the Shore: the natural beauty of Island Beach and the Forsythe Refuge, familiar and timeless beach towns, the decay of Asbury Park and Atlantic City. Quirky history such as Lucy the Margate Elephant and the High-Diving Horse of Atlantic City¹s old Steel Pier are also remembered. This beautiful hardcover also includes more than two dozen images by some of the state¹s best photographers.
