“I want to be a writer. My whole soul burns most ardently for it.”
No one loved rambling through the woods and watching ships come and go from the port near his home as much as young Henry Longfellow.

His life was a grand though sometimes heartbreaking adventure, and the lessons he learned contributed to the greatness of his writing.
