2022 Annual Gathering of the Thoreau Society

The Thoreau Society 2022 Annual Gathering

 "Thank Heaven, here is not all the world. The buck-eye does not grow in New England, and the mocking-bird is rarely heard here. The wild-goose is more of a cosmopolite than we; he breaks his fast in Canada, takes a luncheon in the Ohio, and plumes himself for the night in a southern bayou." H.D.T.
