The Transcendentalist movement centered on the Boston area, and its members are a Who�s Who of American letters - Hawthorn, Alcott, Thoreau, and Emerson are the biggies. Many of the buildings and locations associated with the movement still exist, and Felton's research not only highlights their location but the details of how they came to be and who owned what over the years. His strength is a detailed review of the movement's underpinnings, and while the buildings are secondary to the movement, they are what we can stand in front of and take pictures.
