Summary
  • "Before Ralph Waldo Emerson was a great writer, he was a city boy who longed for the broad, open fields and deep, still woods of the country, and then a young man who treasured books, ideas, and people. When he grew up and set out in the world, he wondered, could he build a life around these things he loved? This tender and joyful portrait of the man whose vision helped shape the American spirit illustrates the rewards of a life well lived, one built around personal passions: creativity and community, nature and friendship"--Jacket flap
  • This picture book is a biography of American author Ralph Waldo Emerson, a writer and poet who built his life around his personal passions: creativity and community, nature and friendship
