Come along with author William J. Lewis and watch as he struggles to personally identify with being a Piney and how the term piney has changed and evolved into what it is today. Watch a cast of ole time Pineys discuss what it was like ‘back in their day’ acknowledging the Pineys of today have adapted to societal changes. Serving as a symbolic passing of the torch to the Pineys of today. Answering once and for all the question of what a Piney was and is. And bearing witness to the migration of the piney from the woods to adjust to the new urban and city life. Along the highway of South Jersey’s past, we show how two different types of Pineys found each other and fell in love. And you’ll discover for yourself, “Is Bill Wasiowich truly the last Piney alive today?”
