When people think of Mystic, Connecticut, they think of Mystic Pizza. Yet when they visit this quaint seacoast village, they find a lot more than pizza! National Geographic named Mystic one of the top "100 Adventure Towns" in the U.S. Mystic Seafarer's Trail is a historical--and sometimes hysterical--adventure book, which includes little known facts behind Mystic’s pizza, Amelia Earhart's wedding, hurricanes, cemeteries and massacre, plus information on area shipwrecks, Benedict Arnold’s treachery and Ernie the Ledge Light Ghost. Summary: While searching for the "7 Wonders of Mystic" with her beagle/basset hound, author Lisa Saunders uncovers the secrets behind the Titanic's shoes, Captain Sisson's hunt for gold and Amelia Earhart's wedding.

Can this landlubber defy squalls, scurvy, and her fear of scraping barnacles to survive this epic journey?

"Do you realize the back of your skirt is tucked into your underwear?" What a debut in my new hometown—I don’t think this is what National Geographic meant when they named Mystic one of the top 100 adventure towns in the U.S...
