The August Derleth Society And The Wisconsin Idea Theatre Present:
Return to Walden West by August Derleth
For all the years of his life, Sac Prairie, Wisconsin was August Derleth’s Walden; he spent six decades illustrating his belief that his native village and the lives of its inhabitants make up a microcosmos that reflects the universal truths of the macrocosmos. In Walden West he wrote a quasi-autobiographical accounting of the world of Sac Prairie— the village itself, the people of the village, the countryside, the river and hills. Return to Walden West, the sequel, is Midwestern in its moods and its people, who, with their triumphs and resignations, could have been met down many an inviting byway in Wisconsin.
