Excerpt from New Jersey: A Guide to Its Present and Past, Complied and Written by the Federal Writers' Project of the Works Progress Administration for the State of New Jersey This story of New Jersey is cause for pride to those who love the State, but must also give pause to those who can be critical at the same time. Its beauty and romance, its ugliness and the commonplace have been preserved in an unusual balance by the collaborators in the evaluation of the State. The Editors are to be heartily congratulated upon an achievement of note, as this Guide is a distinct contribution to a knowledge of the history of New Jersey. Beatrice Winser, LibrarianNewark Public Library The New Jersey Guild Associates as co-sponsors with the Newark Public Library have a deep sense of satisfaction in bringing before the public the New Jersey Guide. Here at last is an authentic story of our State that will warm the hearts of the old residents and prove interesting reading for anyone who may happen upon it. Highways and wayside taverns are adequately described, but this new kind of guide leads to strange and remote places. It undertakes excursions into history and economics and the arts. Afield, it detours from the main traveled roads for unexpected forays to spots that scarcely one tourist in a thousand would find unaided places that are unknown even to the motor-minded residents of New Jersey. In a very real sense the book lifts up familiar, sun-baked stones to reveal the quiet life beneath. Our hope is that publication of new and revised editions of the Guide may become a New Jersey custom. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
