More information about the book from Plexus Publishing Inc:

"In this collection of "new tales from old haunts," Paul Evans Pedersen Jr. delivers a literary feast for Pine Barrens enthusiasts and emerges as southern New Jersey's most exciting new storyteller in decades. There's something here for everyone—from offbeat explanations of natural phenomena, to unconventional takes on popular legends, to strange doings in mysterious towns and taverns. Throughout, you'll be entertained by a rogue's gallery of weird and colorful characters.

Make no mistake about it: These are not your traditional Pine Barrens legends. Pedersen's 21 stories and three songs are inspired by South Jersey's rich folklore and his love for the Pines, but only his remarkable imagination could have produced a work as fresh and original as The Legendary Pine Barrens."
