Bypassed by time and "Joisey" Shore-bound vacationers, the marshes and forests of the Bayshore constitute one of North America's last, great, undiscovered wild places. Sixty million people live within a tank of gas of this environmentally rich and diverse place, yet most miss out on this region's most amazing spectacles.
"""Bayshore Summer" is a bridge that links the rest of the world to this timeless land. Pete Dunne acts as ambassador and tour guide, following Bayshore residents as they haul crab traps, bale salt hay, stake out deer poachers, and pick tomatoes. He examines and appreciates this fertile land, how we live off it and how all of us connect with it. From the shorebirds that converge by the thousands to gorge themselves on crab eggs to the delicious fresh produce that earned the Garden State its nickname, from the line-dropping expectancy of party boat fishing to the waterman who lives on a first-name basis with the birds around his boat, "Bayshore Summer" is at once an expansive and intimate portrait of a most special place, a secret Eden, and a glimpse into a world as rich as summer and enduring as a whispered promise.
