Here's what they're saying about
Henry Beston's Cape Cod by Don Wilding

"Reading this informative book by Don Wilding, Beston advocate par excellence, is a reminder that Henry Beston was a remarkable man and influential ­far beyond his own expectations. It's fun and valuable to learn what made Henry tick. Mr. Wilding is due a lot of praise for obtaining comments and recollections of Beston by a number of individuals mostly on the Cape whose impressions would have been lost if the author's energy and zeal hadn't been harnessed to Beston's star. We hope Don Wilding has a safe place for all the notes he took and that he and/or others will use and expand on them. A southeastern Massachusetts newspaper man, Don Wilding knows what makes "good copy." This little book is terse, quick and eminently interesting to read. It's a compliment to say that we readers wish there's more to be said about Henry Beston and that we hope Don Wilding will say it."
-- Brad Lynch, The Barnstable Patriot

"(We) were overwhelmed with your ability to write such a powerful biography of Henry Beston -- the man ... Henry Beston’s Cape Cod should sell extremely well ..."
-- George Rongner, friend of Henry Beston

“Smartly done, Mr. Wilding. I hope you feel extremely good about your effort.”
-- Jack Authelet, author and historian

"Keep up the good work in Henry's name."
-- Bob Seay, WOMR-FM, Provincetown, Mass.

"(Don Wilding) is arguably Beston’s No. 1 fan, and hopes to bring Beston’s name and simple, Earth-oriented philosophy to a larger audience.”
-- Conor Berry, The Cape Cod Times, Hyannis, Mass.

"(Henry) Beston, traumatized by the mechanized destruction of World War I, knew and ultimately rejected (the mechanized world). (Nan Turner) Waldron understood. Now Wilding does."
-- James Merolla, The Sun Chronicle, Attleboro, Mass.

"Wilding succeeds in putting more flesh around Beston's life."
-- Sue Harrison, The Provincetown Banner, Provincetown, Mass.

"For Wilding, Beston lives on through his words, which he considers more relevant today than ever."
-- Craig Salters, The Patriot Ledger, Quincy, Mass.

"Congratulations on preserving -- and creating -- a piece of history about something that really matters."
-- Betsy Shea-Taylor, The Sun Chronicle, Attleboro, Mass.
