Synopsis

Stories of New Jersey by F. Stockton

Frank R. Stockton's stories recreate the events and moods of New Jersey from the days of the Lenni-Lenape Indians and the Dutch colonists to the expolits of New Jerseyans in the Mexican War. Here are the colorful historical and legendary figures of New Jersey's past: colonials who fought, traded with, and were captured by Indians; the perpetrators of New Jersey's own Tea Party; revolutionary heroes and heroines; frontiersmen, early inventors, schoolmasters, doctors, and privateersmen. Some of their stories have been told many times, but rarely as well. These tales are reproduced exactly as they first appeared in 1896, in a book which remained in print until 1945 and which has remained so popular over the years that it has in itself become a part of New Jersey's history. The book's turn-of-the-century flavor is enhanced by many illustrations, including drawings by twenty-one artists that provide realistic detail in the style of a bygone era.
