In his new book, Barry Andrews shows how American Transcendentalists developed rich spiritual practices. By keeping journals, walking, reading, and living simply, Emerson, Thoreau, Fuller, and others nurtured their souls and found inspiration to fight for abolition, women’s rights, and education reform. Andrews reveals how these spiritual practices are valuable to spiritual seekers and religious liberals today.

Barry M. Andrews, a retired Unitarian minister, is author of several books, including Thoreau as Spiritual Guide and Emerson as Spiritual Guide.
