About This Book
From the award-winning creators of Those Rebels, John and Tom, a joyful portrait of an American icon and an inspiring blueprint for how to live your life.
All life is an experiment.
experiments you make
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 moving biography, presented with Barbara Kerley and Edwin Fotheringham's inimitable grace and style, illustrates the rewards of a life well-lived, one built around personal passions: creativity and community, nature and friendship.
May it inspire you to experiment and build the life you dream of living.
