For the traveler who might not have a yacht—just a sense of humor and a spirit of adventure—Stephanie Schorow proves you can still embark on a voyage through the Boston Harbor Islands. A practical guide, complete with camping tips and driving directions, East of Boston's droll travelogue takes the measure of these gloriously wild Edens all within sight of the city's skyline. Join Schorow around a campfire for some friendly conversation about pirate treasure, elusive foxes, cross-dressing ghosts, flying Santas and a strange era of spontaneously combusting garbage dumps. And if you are truly brave, perhaps take a sip of the park ranger's "Sumac-ade."
