Six Walks: In the Footsteps of Henry David Thoreau.

Jordan Salama’s Every Day the River Changes is an exhilarating story for a new generation about a journey along Colombia’s Magdalena River, exploring life by the banks of a majestic river, now at risk, and how a country recovers from conflict. 

Ben Shattuck’s book, Six Walks: In the Footsteps of Henry David Thoreau is an account of six journeys taken by Shattuck, each one inspired by a walk once taken by Henry David Thoreau. Six Walks is a resounding tribute to the ways walking in nature can inspire us all. *

*We dedicate Ben Shattuck’s appearance to the memory of J. Parker Huber, longtime festival lover and lifelong follower of the Thoreau’s work.  Memoriam by Tom Slayton here.
