Don Wilding Talk

February 18 at 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Henry Beston’s The Outermost House is considered to be one of the great nature books ever written. Learn how Beston’s trail to Cape Cod began at the Battle of Verdun in World War I, how he tapped into the healing power of nature on Cape Cod’s Outer Beach, how The Outermost House inspired legislators in Washington to establish the Cape Cod National Seashore, and the influence that Beston and The Outermost House had on Rachel Carson, other nature writers, and the American environmental movement. Featured are archival photos and rough-cut footage from the Beston/Outermost House documentary film, now in production. Don presents the “Henry Beston’s Cape Cod” program as a benefit for the nonprofit Henry Beston Society.
