After encountering her mentor, an eminent Thoreau scholar, eleven days after his death, in The Thoreau Whisperer, Cathryn McIntyre finds she must hone her psychic ability, set her doubts aside and accept the role she was destined to play in a remarkable collaboration that allows Thoreau's words to be heard once again in our time.If you met Thoreau on the street in Concord today and struck up a conversation you might well hear the same words you will read within the pages of The Thoreau Whisperer. He is as real in spirit, as he was in life. He is still following his own unique path, is concerned with the higher laws and the fundamental truths, and is inspiring us with his insights and humor as he shares observations about the life that he lived, about life as it is lived today and about his experiences in the realms of spirit. And, just as in her book, Honor in Concord, in The Thoreau Whisperer, Cathryn McIntyre presents a reality that few others have experienced. In The Thoreau Whisperer, it is clear that Thoreau was right when he wrote in Walden, "The universe is wider than our views of it."In addition to The Thoreau Whisperer, Cathryn McIntyre is the author of Honor in Concord: Seeking Spirit in Literary Concord and the founder of The Concord Writer, a literary and publishing concern that is dedicated to the words, wisdom and enduring spirit of American author, Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862).
