Book Details

Format: EPUB

Protection: DRM

Language: English

In the tradition of his well-loved The Outermost House, Henry Beston’s Northern Farm captures “the elusive magic of a year on a Kennebee farm…in truly beautiful prose” (Kirkus Reviews).  Among the blue-white shadows and graceful curves of freshly fallen snow, the girst rains of spring, and the quiet green of an early summer morning, Beston brings the reader into an inescapable alliance with the natural world.  He translates the philosophy of the Maine farmer into terms as applicable in Manhattan as on the Kennebee.  One of the great classics of American nature writing, Northern Farm is inspiring reading and ranks as one of Beston’s most memorable and lyrical works. HENRY BESTON (1888-1968) was the author of many books, including The Outermost House, White Pine and Blue Water, and The St. Lawrence.
