Transcendental Wild Oats, And Excerpts from the Fruitlands Diary - Louisa May Alcott
Transcendental Wild Oats, And Excerpts from the Fruitlands Diary - Louisa May Alcott
Our Price: $9.95

Originally published in 1873. Bronson Alcott -- along with his wife and four daughters, and an odd assortment of friends who knew more about philosophy than they did about farming -- set out to make a utopian dream come true. Would their experiment at Fruitlands last through the hard New England winter? Louisa May Alcott's classic satire on her father's Transcendental commune is for readers of all ages who love Alcott, history, or just a good story told with huor and sensitivity.
Applewood Books, 1981. Paperback, 92 pp.
Wild Fruits
Wild Fruits: Thoreau's Rediscovered Last Manuscript - Henry David Thoreau, Bradley P. Dean, ed. (Paperback)
Our Price: $17.95

The distinctly American gospel--never before published--of our great nature writer, mystic, ecologist, and prophet.The final harvest of a great writer's last years, Wild Fruits presents Thoreau's sacramental vision of nature--a vision compelling in part because it grew out of an approach to the natural world at once scientific and mystical. The difficulties of Thoreau's handwriting, method of composition, notations, and pagination have kept his final observations and meditations from publication until now; thanks to the assiduous efforts of Thoreau specialist Bradley Dean, this great work can finally be brought to light. This book was reviewed in Thoreau Society Bulletin 230, Winter 2000, p. 3.
