Betsy's Adventuresby Julie Anne Thomas-Zucker
In Betsy's Adventures, Betsy, a school teacher, explores the secrets of Santa Cruz County. She starts her family and along the way meets many of the characters in the county's rich history. She helps to found a state park. Betsy finds two children while exploring in the mountains. She eventually marries a rich lawyer from San Francisco after a long engagement. She rides on the InterUrban streetcar, loses her best friend in a cave, experiences the 1918 earthquake with her boyfriend. With wit, intellect and morality, Thomas-Zucker crafts a cast of ordinary characters that are easy to relate to and display a broad range of human emotions.
Thomas-Zucker hopes Betsy's Adventures will inspire anyone who reads it to go and explore the "secret" places that are mentioned in Betsy's Adventures and create their own adventures and fall in love with the beautiful area as she has. Maybe even uncover a mystery or two that still lurches around creating intrigue and mystery.
