James Arruda Henry was in his mid-nineties when he began to learn to
read and write. For over nine decades he had lived successfully without
being able to sign his own name. Inspired by a book written by a 98 year
old man who had also lived without literacy, James began quietly
practicing his own signature at the dining room table and went on to
hand write his first book. From his earliest recollections of his
grandfather's farm in the Azores to a snippet of his daily life today,
James shows how a life powered by commitment, hard work and
determination can redefine a person at any age.

A humorous and historical look at the haunts and homes of Mystic’s
famous sea voyagers, plus one woman’s quest for a high seas adventure,
easy fame, and a place to call home. While searching for the Seven
Wonders of Mystic, Connecticut, 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 Noank wedding. But will she
ever find an adventure of her own? One that will make her thin and
famous? Enough to afford a housekeeper? When walking the Mystic
Seafarer's Trail (which Lisa designed for those who don't like to go
uphill), she meets a blind sailor who invites her on a long, winter
voyage. Can this plump writer defy squalls, scurvy, and her fear of
scraping barnacles to survive this epic journey?
