The shared Long Beach Island experience is captured in this perfect-for-the-beach collection of articles and photographs, filled with timeless Island pleasures, history, nature, storms, landmarks, and, of course, memories.

In this curated selection of great writing from The SandPaper, The Beachcomber and other publications, the shared experience that is Long Beach Island is presented for locals and visitors alike. More than 70 accounts capture quintessential experiences on the water and on the beach, the joy of a shore summer and our dramatically different seasons. There is humor, history and natural history, the terror of great storms, environmental warnings from the past, and timeless island pleasures that continue from one generation to the next. From stories about landmarks to ice cream; from fishing, sailing, and surfing to rescues, beachcombing, and entertainment, this collection is a delightful salty sampler of Long Beach Island life.
