Henry Beston's Cape Cod: How 'The Outermost House' Inspired for a National Seashore. Don Wilding, the co-founder of the nonprofit Henry Beston Society on Cape Cod and author of the book has presented this program on Cape Cod and across New England extensively since 2001. Beston's book, The Outermost House, was written in 1927 after Beston spent a solitary year in a 20 x 16 cottage on Eastham's outer beach. The Outermost House is now considered an American classic on the level of the works of Thoreau, Muir and other noted nature writers, and was cited as a major influence on the establishment of the Cape Cod National Seashore in 1961.
