This book captures why we must preserve what's left of nature in New Jersey-and it reads like page-turner you can't put down."-Jeff Tittel, Director, New Jersey Sierra Club "Full of exciting tales about New Jersey, from the crowded urban areas to the most remote places of the state."-Joanna Burger, author of A Naturalist Along the New Jersey Shore The fastest animal on earth dive-bombs him from the skies. A young black bear bounds up a mountain trail a few yards away. Poisonous snakes swirl at his feet. A thousands bats careen past his head in a pitch-black roost. Pods of dolphins swim right past him by the scores. Who? Experienced naturalist David Wheeler. Where? Inside the pages of Wild New Jersey, of course. Count on this to be the first nature book to paint the extraordinary picture of New Jersey's unlikely wilderness in all its glory.

Each year, more than 2,500 men, women and, occasionally, children set out to hike the more than 2,189 miles of the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine (or vice versa). Good preparation is often the key to whether they become part of the 25-28 percent who make it. For this adventure of a lifetime, the Thru-Hike Planner will help you chart a course, work out a budget, choose gear, plan meals, get in shape and otherwise inspire. It comes with homework: charts and worksheets and checklists and forms, all designed to be ripped out and spread over the kitchen table and then stuck in your pack. This sixth edition brings together the up-to-date advice of recent hikers with the mileages and trends seen by the trail's managers. It advances the mileages and shelters to 2015 status and includes new tips, including advice on smartphones, GPS, Web sites, other books and other devices.
