"I want to thank Don Wilding of the Henry Beston Society for coming to Tahanto to share his presentation on 'Henry Beston's Cape Cod.' Our students were able to learn so much more about one of America's greatest writers and naturalists than they could have by just reading the book. I was particularly touched and motivated by the portions of the presentation that illuminated Beston's compassion towards his fellow man. If any of you get the chance to meet Don, or read his book, or see his presentation, I highly recommend you do."
-- Peter Doherty, English Department, Tahanto Regional High School, Boylston, Mass., October 2013
