I started a short book today called The Outermost House by Henry Beston. It was written in 1928, and probably wouldn't be popular today. It's the memoir of a year spent in a small cottage on the outermost edge of Cape Cod. Very sentimental and "back to nature." But you know that sounds good to me, right? Here's a quote from the foreword:
"When the Pleiades and the wind in the grass are no longer a part of the human spirit, a part of every flesh and bone, man becomes, as it were, a kind of cosmic outlaw."
