Elizabeth Bougerol set out on a pilgrimage of sorts. She started at a clam shack in southern Connecticut and ate her way north through Rhode Island, Massachusetts (and the islands), New Hampshire, and all along the coast of Maine, ending up about 10 minutes from the Canadian border, where she ate a bowl of fish chowder that made her cry.

She chronicles her trip and profiles more than 100 shacks, dives, and roadside huts (even a few restaurants) in New England's Favorite Seafood Shacks, a food-travel scrapbook from Countryman Press packed with classic seaside eats, the places and faces behind the meals, and a trove of shore history and ephemera.
