"The Legendary Pine Barrens: New Tales From Old Haunts," is a collection of dark and quirky short stories inspired by South Jersey folklore, according to the library website.
The author introduces a rogue’s gallery of weird and colorful characters in tales that run the gamut from offbeat explanations of natural phenomena, to unconventional takes on popular legends, to strange doings in mysterious Piney towns and taverns. Pedersen puts his unique spin on such legendary local subjects as the immortal Jersey Devil, dancing bandit Joe Mulliner, and the mysterious Blue Hole of Winslow.
