Book Description Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The Pine Barrens are so close to New York that on a very clear night a bright light in the pines would be visible from the Empire State Building. New Jersey is one of the most densely populated US states, but, unknown to many, it is also home to a vast forest of pines, oaks and cedars almost identical in size to the Grand Canyon. This is the Pine Barrens. People tend to think of New Jersey as a suburban thoroughfare, yet huge sections of the Pine Barrens remain uninhabited. Beneath its sandy soil lies an immense natural reservoir of soft pure water, while amongst the trees grow millions of wild blueberry and cranberry bushes. With his customary curiosity, McPhee sets out to map this mysterious landscape. He retraces its history and meets the 'pineys', the often misunderstood people who call the pines home. One resident can navigate the dense woods by sheer memory, and another responds to McPhee's knock on his door with a pork chop in one hand, a raw onion in the other, and the inimitable greeting, 'Come in. Come in. Come on the hell in.' The Pine Barrens is a compelling portrait of a place and its people, and a celebration of a rare wilderness in our increasingly urban landscape. 'McPhee's genius is that he can write about anything.' Robert Macfarlane 'McPhee is a grand master of narrative non-fiction.' Guardian Whatever he writes about, McPhee manages to make it not just accessible but fascinating.' Scotsman 'Proves that factual writing can be as "creative" as any novel.' New Statesman 'His mind is pure curiosity: It aspires to flow into every last corner of the world, especially the places most of us overlook.' New York Times 'John McPhee remains without peer. To our good fortune he revels in a universe full of things to understand, and there is nobody better at sharing that joy with his readers.' Washington Post. Seller Inventory # AAZ9781911547167

Grand Eagle Retail

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. Most people think of the American state of New Jersey as a suburban-industrial corridor that sits just west of New York City. But in the centre of the state lies a vast wilderness - larger than most national parks - which has been known since the seventeenth century as the Pine Barrens. In The Pine Barrens, McPhee uses his uncanny skills as a journalist to explore the history of the region and to describe the people - and their distinctive folklore - who call it home. Including one who can navigate the immensely dense woods by sheer memory, and another who responds to McPhee's knock on his door with a pork chop in one hand, a raw onion in the other, and the greeting 'Come in. Come in. Come on the hell in.' With a new foreword by Iain Sinclair In The Pine Barrens, McPhee uses his uncanny skills as a journalist to explore the history of the region and to describe the people - and their distinctive folklore - who call it home. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability. Seller Inventory # 9781911547167
