Beston biography worth the wait

For many years, literary buffs and nature devotees here on Cape Cod have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of a biography on Henry Beston, author of “The Outermost House.”

This fall, Godine Publishing released “Orion on the Dunes: A Biography of Henry Beston” by Daniel G. Payne, English professor at SUNY Oneonta and author of several books on nature writers.

Take it from someone who’s done more than a little research on this “Vagabond of the Dunes,” as Beston often referred to himself; Payne left no stone unturned in his quest to chronicle the life of one of the Outer Cape’s great writers.
