Brings to life the writers of Concord's literary past. The author's story is also told. She is a writer with a psychic sensibility who sets out to record the impressions that she has while living in Concord. What results is a weave of ficton and fact that includes extraordinary moments from her own life, as well as poignant images that she draws from Concord's literary past, like that of Thoreau in his final days struggling to complete his essay, "Walking;" Hawthorne "drifting into the sea of infinity" as he writes; and Martha Hunt's act of "purification" in the waters of the Concord River. It is through this mix of reality and imagination that we see the link that exists between the present and the past, and we are reminded of the presence of spirit in our lives. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.
AuthorHouse, 2008. Paperback, 219 pp.
Takes the reader on several journeys to Concord, Massachusetts, specifically Walden Pond, with several characters all interrelated but very different. Lucy is a chocolatier from New Jersey who always tries to do the right thing and to see the good in people even if it hurts her in the long run. Billy, her smart but complicated lawyer husband, despises her optimism and is hell bent on making her as miserable as he is. Rico, a biker, doesn’t look like a romantic, but truly is one, as is evident by his relationship to Diana, whom he literally brings back to life. Through her divorced years, Lucy encounters Ted, who lost his soul, and Chris, a country singer/songwriter from Lubbock, Texas, who comes to the pond searching for something missing in his life.
Spanning the early 1980s through 9/11, to the 2020 pandemic, the threads follow these “pilgrims” who are united by their love of Henry David Thoreau. His quotes guide and motivate the characters throughout their journey.

American author and naturalist Henry David Thoreau is best known for living two years along the shores of Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts, and writing about his experiences in Walden; or, Life in the Woods, as well as spending a night in jail for nonpayment of taxes, which he discussed in the influential essay "Civil Disobedience." More than 150 years later, people are still inspired by his thoughtful words about individual rights, social justice, and nature. His detailed plant observations have even proven to be a useful record for 21st-century botanists. Henry David Thoreau for Kids chronicles the short but influential life of this remarkable American thinker. In addition to learning about Thoreau's contributions to our culture, readers will participate in engaging, hands-on projects that bring his ideas to life. Activities include building a model of the Walden cabin, keeping a daily journal, planting a garden, baking trail-bread cakes, going on a half-day hike, and starting a rock collection.

Half-Earth: Our Planet's Fight for Life - Edward O. Wilson The Soul of an Octopus - Sy Montgomery (SIGNED) The Guide to Walden Pond - Robert M. Thorson (Paperback) (SIGNED)
In his most urgent book to date, world-renowned biologist Edward O. Wilson states that in order to stave off the mass extinction of species, including our own, we must move swiftly to preserve the biodiversity of our planet. He argues that the situation facing us is too large to be solved piecemeal, and he proposes a solution comensurate with the magnitude of the problem: dedicate fully half the surface of the Earth to nature. Identifying actual regions of the planet that can still be reclaimed, Wilson puts aside the prevailing pessimism of our times. Edward O. Wilson won the Henry David Thoreau Prize for literary excellence in nature writing in 2011. BOOKPLATE SIGNED BY AUTHOR.

As a venture capitalist and early investor in biomedicine, Jim Sherblom sought to make a positive impact in the world. At the height of his career, he experienced what could only be called a spiritual awakening, and was drawn away from that success to follow his calling as a newly ordained UU minister. What followed was a multi-religious exploration across the globe, through time and space, and into the transcendental experiences of religious mystics. Here he reflects on his journeys of awakening and the teacings he uncovered from occupying the liminal space of the mystics. He shares these lessons so that others may live deeply and curiously and experience the awakened joy of twenty-first century transcendentalism. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.

In November 1868, a young theological student from New York City arrived in Concord, Massachusetts. Edmond Hotham had never visited the place before, and he immediately began preparations to pursue the "wild life." He met Henry Thoreau's friend, poet William Ellery Channing, who likely introduced Edmond to Ralph Waldo Emerson. Emerson gave the man permission to build his "Earth-cabin" on the Walden Pond property, as Thoreau had. This sojourn was the first and only time someone emulated Thoreau's experiment in simplicity at the initial site. Edmond built his house along the same shoreline as Thoreau's, and lived here for six months during the winter of 1868-1869. This book is the first lengthy study on Edmond Hotham. This book was reviewed in Thoreau Society Bulletin 308, Winter 2020, pp. 8-9. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.
