About Tock's Island: The Delaware River is the largest undammed river in Northeast America -- largely due to the efforts of someone who described herself as "a housewife who got mad", Nancy Shukaitus (her family was slated to lose their 150-acre farm by government eminent domain. She went on to become the first female County Commissioner for Monroe County).

Tocks Island is also the reason why we now have the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.
