Gives a rich and beautifully detailed account of the town -- Concord, Massachusetts -- that Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and the Alcotts called home. Shows that their Concord was primed for revolt, and was hardly a sleepy, bucolic place fit only for poets and philosophers. This book is both an intimate journey into the life of a town and a searching cultural study of major American writers as they plumbed the reaches of the universe for spiritual truths -- and took stock of the rapidly changing contours of their surroundings. No American community has been recovered so richly and located so meaningfully within the larger American story. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR on the title page.
