In 1925, Henry Beston built a small house on Cape Cod and spent a year there with minimal human contact. His reflection on the experience, THE OUTERMOST HOUSE, is a revered part of Cape Cod's literary history. Brett Barry shines as the voice of Beston, a naturalist. Barry's narration captures the poetry of Beston's lyrical passages, in which he expresses views on wildlife and conservation that are decades ahead of their time. While some of Beston's descriptions are in the vein of a field guide, others are wise and moving. This production is best listened to during a walk through one's own favorite natural retreat.
