I loved this, I really did. A neutral narrator and a protagonist that you end up rooting for and disagreeing with at every turn, this narrative fiction is absolutely wonderful. Highly recommended for any and everyone. Encounters with the Archdruid probably has something for you.

It was interesting to learn a little about this region of New Jersey that I previously didn't know existed. There were some interesting tidbits about the regional language and local superstitions.

I did feel that the people and their way of life were romanticized a bit… perhaps the author's way of balancing the more negative portrayals of Pineys.

The book did make me want to move further out and live off the land, lol.

There was some profanity, including God's name misused.

A note on the special edition with photos: The photos were not great. They were in black and white, and the lighting honestly sucked. Half the time, I couldn't really tell what I was looking at. The pages were way too large for the content, and so the book was awkward to hold while reading.

Learning from a Lifetime

Tell and show - McPhee's experience on display on every page. Just the Burton and Eisenhower anecdotes are worth the entry fee.
