Thoreau on Wolf Hill – “The Stars are Winking”

December 21, 2014


Thoreau on Wolf Hill by B. B. Oak

At first I didn’t want to read this. I am a big fan of Thoreau and it just didn’t seem right to mess with his image. But in the first half I discovered the context in which he lived, something of Emerson and why Thoreau’s observation skills make him an excellent American Sherlock Holmes.

Then in the second half, I became engrossed in the mystery. It has vampires, sex, theatrics, and unexpected surprises. I couldn’t put it down. Best of all it fits and enriches. This will be the Christmas I remember I read this book. Like Henry David Thoreau it became a part of my life.
