A great book detailing the inter-relationships of all the notable people in Concord, MA in 1800s. Many books focus on just one individuals perspective. I took notes so when I visit Concord again, I can refresh my memory.

This is a really good read! I have a fair amount of background on the figures dealt with here. This is an invitation into their world through the complex/kinky people they were. Makes you want to know more about who they were and what they wrote. They were diverse and yet they all lived in a small town together...and had a powerful effect on the larger world.

I would have loved to gossip about Emerson & Thoreau. This book gave me that experience.

Bittersweet, this book reveals the lives of a group of famous people that lived together in fairly good company to become some of the best minds in America. Intimate and unswerving portrayals bring their personal and professional triumphs and defeats to life. Their own foibles may have conspired against them but they were never beaten, their words and thoughts living long into the future. Truly a thought provoking work in an extraordinary time period.
