A book I didn’t know existed until I received it as a gift from Jean Wilson in Christmas. Henry Beston’s nature writing classic “The Outermost House” turned into a beautifully illustrated book “The Fo’c’sle” for children. Nan Parson Rossiter is the author of text and drawings.
In September 1926 Henry Beston went to his new summer house on Cape Cod for a couple of weeks but stayed there for a year. It resulted in a book.
“The sea begins with the stars,” wrote Charlotte Runcie. More words about the night sky and moon and sea from Henry Beston, Emily Brontë, Iris Murdoch, Tove Jansson and others.
