An independent scholar, HARMON SMITH is actively engaged in the open space conservation movement in the Housatonic River Watershed.
Smith brings Thoureau, Emerson, and many others in their circle alive as rounded characters and sets them in the context of their times. His emphasis upon personal rather than intellectual relations between Thoureau and Emerson allows us to understand each man and his writing in a fresh way.--Shaun O'Connell, author of Imagining Boston: A Literary Landscape A remarkable book... about the most important friendship in American letters.--Christopher Lydon, "The Connection," National Public Radio
