An illuminating biography on Henry Beston, author of The Outermost House. A prolific contributor to 20th century naturalism and conservationist movement, Beston is often rightly compared to nature writers Henry David Thoreau and Rachel Carson. Payne's writing, while comprehensive, is not academic, and makes for an enjoyable read about this extraordinary man.

The Indian

Told in scraps of memories, visceral experiences, and excerpts from psychological reports, Jón recounts his childhood from an evolving perspective. Though isolated, and constantly pushed away (by family, schoolmates, friends) because of his strangeness, little Jón has admirable verve while retrospective Jón makes sure we laugh at the most dismal situations (setting a bedroom on fire, Dad's stinking barrel of fermenting meat and fish parts).
