Hank and Jonna (re-interpreted versions of Henry and John Thoreau) set off in "a vessel of spirit placed on the medium of nature" a journey in a boat these two adventurous siblings handcrafted to explore the legendary Concord and Merrimack rivers. This duo find themselves guided on a quest to find the means to heal the profound trauma that befell Hank, a great American activist, scientist, and man of letters. Set in the lands that mark the birthplace of the American Revolution, Hank and Jonna experience the ancient ways in which the human soul resonates and interfaces with nature, while witnessing the lives of country folk and the living world's growing relationship with modernization.
An adaptation of the story behind Thoreau's first book, A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers, OF RIVERS, OF DAYS is a journey through the mind of this great writer during his darkest hours.
