Joe Bass Adventures Series

Joe Bass Adventures Series Series Cover

Author Christopher Barry is a lifetime resident of South Dennis, New Jersey, a small, rural town near the Delaware Bay shore that has a rich history as a nineteenth-century shipbuilding and commercial hub. He was inspired as a child by the stories told to him by the area’s elderly natives. It is not only the history but the culture of self-reliant craftsmen and entrepreneurs upon which the Joe Bass novels are based. Barry’s use of locale and local lore is masterful, and he is also the illustrator of his books.
