Most widely held works by Henry Beston
The St. Lawrence by Henry Beston( Book )
19 editions published between 1942 and 2012 in English and held by 1,126 libraries worldwide
Overview: Vast watercourse, boundary, and the gateway to North America-the St. Lawrence River has been an integral player in the formation of Canada as we know it today. But as writer and naturalist Henry Beston reminds us, this great passageway carries much more than historical significance to the wildlife of its waters and banks. Travelling along the river more than 70 years ago, Beston expertly observed its natural environment as he researched the greatest survey of the land and its people that had yet been written. Illustrated with sketches from the Group of Seven's A.Y. Jackson, The St. Lawrence quickly became one of the most beloved titles in the Rivers of America series when it was first published in 1942. The Wynford edition restores to print this classic work of non-fiction, with a new introduction by Beston's biographer, Daniel Payne, to situate the book within its historical context for the modern reader

Herbs and the earth by Henry Beston( Book )
8 editions published between 1935 and 1990 in English and held by 525 libraries worldwide
This is not strictly a gardening book (although there is plenty for the gardener to learn in it), but the reflections of a man thinking not only about what he grows but how it grows, its roots in religion, the Bible, history and medicine. Beston described his efforts as "part garden book, part musing study of our relation to nature through the oldest group of plants known to gardeners." The book was written at the Maine homestead, Chimney Farm. Illustrated with the woodcuts of American stone cutter/letter designer/craftsman John Howard Benson
