The story behind Henry Beston’s Cape Cod


Since 1928, Henry Beston's The Outermost House has been the definitive book about Cape Cod and is considered to be one of the greatest nature books ever written. Writer Don Wilding tells the story behind Beston's nature classic at the Weaver Library. An award-winning newspaper editor, writer, and designer in Massachusetts for 30 years, Wilding is now a contributing history columnist and photographer for newspapers on the Cape, and a regular speaker on Cape Cod lore in Massachusetts and across New England.

He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
