Henry Beston’s Cape Cod: How The Outermost House Inspired A National Seashore

August 25 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Henry Beston’s book, “The Outermost House,” is considered to be one of the great nature books ever written. Cape Cod author and historian Don Wilding tells 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.
