An exploration of the sense of place. what it means, how it developed, and why it matters. Based on an eighteenth-century literary device in which a group of friends undertake a walking tour and discuss a certain subject, this wide-ranging story emerges from the author's fifteen-mile hike through woods, backyards, and marshes in Massachusetts -- from a hilltop in Westford to the town of Concord -- trepassing all along the way. A mock epic, complete with encounters with armed mercenaries and vicious dogs, the book covers all the aspects of place -- art, literature, myth, and even music.
University Press of New England, 2015. Paperback, 299 pp.
