EDITORS PICK - West Milford (NJ) (Images of America)

West Milford (NJ) (Images of America)- Samantha Vaughan - - Used Book in Good Condition West Milford has always been known for its natural beauty. Its approximately eighty square miles of mountains and lakes have delighted visitors for more than a century. In the mid-1800s, renowned Hudson River School painter Jasper F. Cropsey, who married local resident Maria Cooley, captured many West Milford landscapes in their autumnal splendor. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, many resorts opened in the township and railroads brought wealthy vacationers from New York City to enjoy the countryside. West Milford also has a rich industrial history; ironworks produced cannonballs, stoves, and other items for the Continental militia during the Revolutionary War, including links for iron chains strung across the Hudson River to block access by the British fleet. In West Milford, previously unpublished images of these places and events bring the past to light, providing insight into the townships rich and diverse history. Featured items include images of the 40-room stone mansion Cross Castle, the flight of the airmail rocket Gloria, Idylease Inn during its construction, and the historic town center. Postcards created of local landmarks during West Milfords tourism heyday are included, as well as rare correspondence and letter cover images from the West Milford Museums Jasper F. Cropsey collection.

The Jersey Brothers: A Missing Naval Officer in the Pacific and His Family's Quest to Bring Him Home -Sally Mott Freeman - - SIMON SCHUSTER The extraordinary, real-life adventure of three brothers at the center of the most dramatic turning points of World War II and their mad race to change history—and save one of their own.

They are three brothers, all Navy men, who end up coincidentally and extraordinarily at the epicenter of three of the war’s most crucial moments. Bill is picked by Roosevelt to run his first Map Room in Washington. Benny is the gunnery and anti-aircraft officer on the USS Enterprise, one of the only carriers to escape Pearl Harbor and by the end of 1942 the last one left in the Pacific to defend against the Japanese. Barton, the youngest and least distinguished of the three, is shuffled off to the Navy Supply Corps because his mother wants him out of harm’s way. But this protection plan backfires when Barton is sent to the Philippines and listed as missing-in-action after a Japanese attack. Now it is up to Bill and Benny to find and rescue him.

Based on ten years of research drawn from archives around the world, interviews with fellow shipmates and POWs, and primary sources including diaries, unpublished memoirs, and letters half-forgotten in basements, The Jersey Brothers is a remarkable story of agony and triumph—from the home front to Roosevelt’s White House, and Pearl Harbor to Midway and Bataan. It is the story, written with intimate, novelistic detail, of an ordinary young man who shows extraordinary courage as the Japanese do everything short of killing him. And it is, above all, a story of brotherly love: of three men finding their loyalty to each other tested under the tortures of war—and knowing that their success or failure to save their youngest brother will shape their family forever.

New Jersey Mob: Memoirs of a Top Cop -Bob Buccino -

Bob Buccino worked in law enforcement for fifty-one years; twenty-four of which were spent investigating organized crime. He is a superior court recognized expert on the Cosa Nostra. He tells his story in three parts: The first is about growing up in Orange, New Jersey, where he was a wannabe admiring the local mob guys. He was a street tough, extorting money from his classmates, running his own bookmaking operation, and wanting to be a mob guy. In 1957, drugs hit the streets of Orange and several friends of Buccino died from Heroin overdoses. Buccino married his childhood sweetheart and they had a baby boy. He came to his senses about the mob and broke away from it. He became a working stiff, not getting anywhere with his life. One day, he saw an article in the newspaper announcing testing for state troopers. He took the test, passed, and became a trooper, changing his life forever. The second part of his book is about his often very humorous uniform days as a state trooper. During this time, Anthony "Tumac" Acceturo, a young tough that Buccino grew up with, was beginning his career in the Cosa Nostra. He and Buccino were running parallel lives. When Buccino got transferred off of the uniform division and began his career investigating the Cosa Nostra, Anthony was working for the mob. In the third part of his book, Buccino writes about his success in dismantling the mob in New Jersey, telling about the many arrests and convictions of its mob bosses, including the prosecutions of the high ranking bosses of the Gambino, Lucchese, Bruno, DeCavalcante, and Genovese crime families. He also writes of the arrest and conviction of his childhood friend Anthony "Tumac" Acceturo while he was the deputy chief in the Division of Criminal Justice in charge of the New Jersey Statewide Organized Crime Task Force.


About the Author


Bob Buccino has name recognition throughout New Jersey. During his career in law enforcement, he has supervised over a thousand law enforcement officers. He created an intelligence network and lectured not only in New Jersey but in many states across the U.S. He served as vice chairman in LEIU, a prestigious network of agencies throughout the U.S., Canada, Australia, and Great Britain. He received a great amount of press during his testimony as an expert.

New Jersey: A History of the Garden State - - - Used Book in Good Condition

New Jersey: A History of the Garden State presents a fresh, comprehensive overview of New Jersey’s history from the prehistoric era to the present. The findings of archaeologists, political, social, and economic historians provide a new look at how the Garden State has evolved.

The state has a rich Native American heritage and complex colonial history. It played a pivotal role in the American Revolution, early industrialization, and technological developments in transportation, including turnpikes, canals, and railroads. The nineteenth century saw major debates over slavery. While no Civil War battles were fought in New Jersey, most residents supported it while questioning the policies of the federal government.

Next, the contributors turn to industry, urbanization, and the growth of shore communities. A destination for immigrants, New Jersey continued to be one of the most diverse states in the nation. Many of these changes created a host of social problems that reformers tried to minimize during the Progressive Era. Settlement houses were established, educational institutions grew, and utopian communities were founded. Most notably, women gained the right to vote in 1920. In the decades leading up to World War II, New Jersey benefited from back-to-work projects, but the rise of the local Ku Klux Klan and the German American Bund were sad episodes during this period.

The story then moves to the rise of suburbs, the concomitant decline of the state’s cities, growing population density, and changing patterns of wealth. Deep-seated racial inequities led to urban unrest as well as political change, including such landmark legislation as the Mount Laurel decision. Today, immigration continues to shape the state, as does the tension between the needs of the suburbs, cities, and modest amounts of remaining farmland.

Well-known personalities, such as Jonathan Edwards, George Washington, Woodrow Wilson, Dorothea Dix, Thomas Edison, Frank Hague, and Albert Einstein appear in the narrative. Contributors also mine new and existing sources to incorporate fully scholarship on women, minorities, and immigrants. All chapters are set in the context of the history of the United States as a whole, illustrating how New Jersey is often a bellwether for the nation..

The History of Diners in New Jersey (American Palate) -Michael C. Gabriele - The silver Airstreams and neon signs of the classic American diner brighten New Jersey's highways and Main Streets. But the intrinsic role they have played in the state's culture and industry for more than one hundred years is much more than eggs-over-easy and coffee. Diners are the state's ultimate gathering places--at any moment, high school students, CEOs, construction workers and tourists might be found at a counter chatting with the waitresses and line cooks. Jerseyans yearn for lost favorites like the Excellent Diner and Prout's Diner and still gather at beloved haunts like the Bendix and Tick Tock Diners. Although the industry is all but gone today, New Jersey was once the hub of diner manufacturing, making mobile eateries that fed hungry Americans as far away as the West Coast. Author Michael C. Gabriele offers this delicious history--collected from interviews with owners, patrons and experts--and indulges in many fond memories of New Jersey diners.

A History of Inventing in New Jersey: From Thomas Edison to the Ice Cream Cone -Linda J. Barth - Many Americans are familiar with Thomas Edison's "invention factory" in Menlo Park, where he patented the phonograph, the light bulb and more than one thousand other items. Yet many other ideas have grown in the Garden State, too--New Jerseyans brought sound and music to movies and built the very first drive-in theater. In addition to the first cultivated blueberry, tasty treats like ice cream cones and M&Ms are also Jersey natives. Iconic aspects of American life, like the batting cage, catcher's mask and even professional baseball itself, started in New Jersey. Life would be a lot harder without the vacuum cleaner, plastic and Band-Aids, and many important advances in medicine and surgery were also developed here. Join author Linda Barth as she explores groundbreaking, useful, fun and even silly inventions and their New Jersey roots.

In 1854, 240 passengers of the New Era clipper ship met their fate off Deal Beach. Nobody knows what happened to two hydrogen bombs the United States Air Force lost near Atlantic City in 1957. Lessons from such tragic wrecks and dangerous missteps urged the development of safer ships and the U.S. Coast Guard. Captain Stephen D. Nagiewicz uncovers curious tales of storms, heroism and oddities from New Jersey’s maritime past.

For obvious measures, the chronological sequence of the various immigrations to Amer ica has not been followed. While Swede and Hollander and Huguenot brought to the New W'orld personal qualities of great worth, and which were all-important in the making of the present - day American, the English, and, somewhat later, the Scotch - Irish, his nearest kins men, brought equally valuable elements of moral and mental strength, and, besides, those political ideas and institutions which were destined to overshadow and finally supplant those of all other peoples. Out of these have grown our present - day legislative and governmental methods, and our jurisprudence.
