Palisades Amusement Park:
A Century of Fond Memories Autographed Book
Limited-quantity Hard Cover edition
Originally published in 1995, Palisades Amusement Park: A Century of Fond Memories became the fastest seller in the history of Rutgers University Press. With its two hundred pages and a foreword by the legendary Cousin Bruce Morrow, this oversized coffee table book captures every fond memory of the famous New Jersey fun spot: the vinegar-soaked french fries, the Tunnel of Love, the world's largest outdoor salt water pool, and so much more.
In the foreword of the book, Cousin Brucie recalls, "Palisades was an integral part of our lives. Anybody who has played, visited, or been touched by this magical kingdom retains the glow from a very special relationship." For those who ever visited Palisades Amusement Park, this book is sure to bring back those cherished remembrances. And for those never lucky enough to have entered its colorful gates, Palisades Amusement Park: A Century of Fond Memories will recreate the thrills, laughter and joy that was Palisades. The book will be autographed by the author exclusively for the visitors to PalisadesPark.com. This book will make the perfect gift for anyone on your gift list.
