Collected by Barry M. Andrews Readings from Henry David Thoreau for Every Day of the Year; Offers 365 short readings from the famous Transcendentalist
Barry M Andrews, editor Margaret Fuller in Her Own Words
Commemorates the bicentennial of Margaret Fuller’s birth with a dynamic collection of excerpts from her writings. Also available as an eBook in the Amazon Kindle Store and on Google Play.
Barry M. Andrews focuses on a neglected aspect of this well-known group, showing how American Transcendentalists developed rich spiritual practices to nurture their souls and discover the divine. The practices are common and simple―among them, keeping journals, contemplation, walking, reading, simple living, and conversation. In approachable and accessible prose, Andrews demonstrates how Transcendentalism’s main thinkers, Emerson, Thoreau, Fuller, and others, pursued rich and rewarding spiritual lives that inspired them to fight for abolition, women’s rights, and education reform. In detailing these everyday acts, Andrews uncovers a wealth of spiritual practices that could be particularly valuable today, to spiritual seekers and religious liberals.
