Inquiry welcomes back PETE DUNNE, prolific writer, natural historian, hardcore birder, vice president of New Jersey Audubon Society and Director of its Cape May Bird Observatory. Tonight Pete talks about his latest book BAYSHORE SUMMER: FINDING EDEN IN A MOST UNLIKELY PLACE. This is a wonderful paean to where Pete Dunne lives: the Delaware Bay section of New Jersey. This little visited gem of saltmarsh; shoreline and pine barrens, contains a wealth of wildlife as well as a group of people who are still living lives dependent on the local environment. Tonight Pete talks about fishing for Blue Crabs, haying saltmarsh grass, the legendary Jersey tomato, and the predations of the fearsome Greenhead Fly. Tune in tonight for a rich portrait of one of the least known areas of the east coast.
