Henry Beston's Cape Cod - Weaver
 

 

Since 1928, Henry Beston's The Outermost House has been the definitive book about Cape Cod and considered to be one of the greatest nature books ever written.

Featured are archival photos and rough-cut footage from the Beston/Outermost House documentary film, now in production. Don presents the “Henry Beston’s Cape Cod” program as a benefit for the nonprofit Henry Beston Society.
