Our beloved guide and Piney translator Piney Joe might be the last gnome in the woods. Take a walk with him discovering places full of wild and mysterious scenery in one of our Nation's National Reserves-the New Jersey Pinelands National Reserve. One-part natural history book, one-part folklore, and equal parts roadmap to exciting destinations: the destination isn't always the endpoint and ours is located within a few hours' drive of the largest cities on the East Coast like Philadelphia and New York City. It's a wonder more haven't discovered it before now. Let us guide you with this fully illustrated vintage handheld device along with a wee bit of humor! The journey begins when you pick up the book and start reading. Let your mind escape into Piney Joe's world. Still, the trip isn't over until you take your body and visit the 31 waypoints provided in the Illustrated Trail Map section of the book. And don't mind Piney Joe's accent nor his interesting choice of hats. He's like that fun uncle your mom only lets you hang out with in small doses as he might take you places and let you do things your parents might not approve of. Therein lies the secret of happiness in life. It is to go outside and play unsupervised!
