A True Tale with A Cherry On Top

Author:  Barbara Kerley
and Illustrator: Edwin Fotheringham


Overview from the jacket flap:

“Before Ralph Waldo Emerson was a great writer, he was a city boy who longed for the broad, open fields and deep, still woods of the country, and then a young man who treasured books, ideas, and people.
When he grew up and set out in the world, he wondered, could he build a life around these thing he loved?
This tender and joyful portrait of the man whose vision helped shape the American spirit illustrates the rewards of a life well lived, one built around personal passions: creativity and community, nature and friendship.
‘May it inspire you to experiment and build the life you dream of living.'”
