The Dennis and Yarmouth Town Libraries join together to celebrate the 200th birthday of Henry David Thoreau. Dr. Michael Thurston, of Smith College, explores how Thoreau develops his complex understanding of nature and its value to society, not only as the source of “tonics and barks which brace mankind,” but also as a beneficiary of human attention.
