"(Don Wilding) found (a like-minded soul) in author Nan Turner Waldron, the author of the book, Journey to Outermost House. Waldron stayed at the Outermost House every year between 1961 and 1977, and just before she died, she gave her huge slide collection and research notes to Wilding. It was a legacy he took seriously.”  - Laurie Higgins, The Cape Codder

​*********************************************

"It's a compliment to say that we readers wish there's more to be said about Henry Beston and that we hope Don Wilding will say it.”  - Brad Lynch, The Barnstable Patriot

​*********************************************

"The preview of the Beston documentary that you are working on really sparked the students' interest. How wonderful to see the students so excited about Beston and what he represents to Cape Cod and naturalists and environmentalists everywhere.”  - Elaine Aschettino, English teacher, Chatham High School, Chatham, Mass.

​*********************************************

"I want to thank Don Wilding for coming to Tahanto to share his presentation on Henry Beston's Cape Cod. Our students were able to learn so much more about one of America's greatest writers and naturalists than they could have by just reading the book. I was particularly touched and motivated by the portions of the presentation that illuminated Beston's compassion towards his fellow man. If any of you get the chance to meet Don, or read his book, or see his presentation, I highly recommend you do.”  - Peter Doherty, English Department Chair, Tahanto Regional High School, Boylston, Mass.

​*********************************************

I left marveling at how much Beston's book has both shaped and expressed my experience of the Cape these more-than-forty summers I've been coming here. After your contextualization, the images and quotations in the pre-production video became a meditation on this awesome natural place and our place in it. I left feeling like I'd been to church--something I sometimes miss as a preacher myself!”  - Jack Lohr, attended screening at Cape Cod National Seashore, 2011

​*********************************************

"Thank you to Don Wilding for your entertaining, informative and historical presentation.” 
-- Eastham Chamber of Commerce​

"Thank you so much for taking the time to share your deep knowledge of The Outermost House with our (coastal ecology) class. Our walk with you added another layer of understanding to the students' reading of Beston, and underscored the dynamic nature of life on the Great Beach. I can't wait for the film!”  - Brett Amy Thelen, Franklin Pierce University, Rindge, N.H.
