"A Home for Mr. Emerson" by Barbara Kerley

Before Ralph Waldo Emerson was a great writer, he was a boy who longed for the open fields and still woods of the country, and then a young man who treasured books, ideas, and people. When he grew up, he wondered, could he build a life around these things he loved? This moving biography illustrates the rewards of a life well-lived, one built around personal passions: creativity and community, nature, and friendship.
