All good things are wild and free
Beware of all enterprises that require new clothes.
Give me truth
Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads
In Wildness is the preservation of the world.
I went to the woods
Surely joy is the condition of life
Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in

Millman journeys through the west of Ireland, a rugged geography sometimes referred to as "the last place on earth where conversation is not dead."

Streamline Publishing, 2017. Paperback, 84 pp..
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.

Milkweed Editions, 2016. Paperback, 216 pp.
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. The book also includes a time line and list of resources--books, websites, and places to visit that offer even more opportunities to connect with this fascinating man. This book was reviewed in

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.

Robert M. Young, 2008. Paperback, 215 pp.
Elizabeth, Mary, and Sophia Peabody were in many ways our American Brontes. The story of these remarkable sisters ? and their central role in shaping the thinking of their day ? has never before been fully told. Twenty years in the making, Megan Marshall's monumental biograpy brings the era of creative ferment known as American Romanticism to new life. Elizabeth, the oldest sister, was a mind-on-fire thinker. A powerful influence on the great writers of the era ? Emerson, Hawthorne, and Thoreau among them ? she also published some of their earliest works. It was Elizabeth who prodded these newly minted Transcendentalists away from Emerson's individualism and toward a greater connection to others. Mary was a determined and passionate reformer who finally found her soul mate in the great educator Horace Mann. The frail Sophia was a painter who won the admiration of the preeminent society artists of the day. She married Nathaniel Hawthorne ? but not before Hawthorne threw the delicate dynamics among the sisters into disarray. Marshall focuses on the moment when the Peabody sisters made their indelible mark on history. Her unprecedented research into these lives uncovered thousands of letters never read before as well as other previously unmined original sources.
The Peabody Sisters
casts new light on a legendary American era. Its publication is destined to become an event in American biography. H
ighly recommended for students and reading groups interested in American history, American literature, and women's studies. It is a wonderful look into 19th-century life. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.
