Concord in Neuengland, Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts: ein Eldorado für Freidenker. Schriftsteller um Henry David Thoreau schreiben dort ihre wichtigsten Werke und revolutionieren neben der amerikanischen Literatur auch den amerikanischen Lebensstil: ungezwungen, kreativ und naturverbunden. Durch ein Erbe frühzeitig an Geld gelangt, lädt Ralph Waldo Emerson von ihm bewunderte Schriftsteller nach Concord. Was hier entsteht, wird nicht nur die Bewohner der Kleinstadt, sondern die Geschichte der amerikanischen Kultur in Aufruhr bringen. Die Transzendentalisten, wie die Gruppierung um Henry David Thoreau genannt wird, brechen mit allen Anstandsregeln: Nathaniel Hawthorne und Ralph Waldo Emerson verlieben sich gleichzeitig in die exzentrische Margaret Fuller, Louisa May Alcott schwärmt für ihren viel älteren Lehrer Thoreau, sie diskutieren, lesen sich gegenseitig Manuskripte vor, ernähren sich vegetarisch, ersinnen feministische Ideen und unternehmen Streifzüge durch die Wälder Neuenglands. American Bloomsbury ist das faszinierende Zeugnis dieser amourösen und intellektuellen Begegnungen. Es ist die Geschichte von Idealisten, die ihrer Zeit weit voraus waren.
