    This journal later grew into Transcendental Wild Oats, a satire first published in the Boston Independent in December and later published on its own as a small book. The book is much less gentle than the diary Louisa kept at the time. This and other memories of Fruitlands were recorded years later by Louisa May in a lively little book called Transcendental Wild Oats. In it she changed the names of the characters, but other sources confirm many of the episodes that she witnessed as a girl of ten.

Analyze some of the ways in which Transcendentalism appears in the scenes and characters in Work. ["Fruitlands." Amos Bronson Alcott. 5 Mar. ] Fruitlands had only a brief opportunity to impact America and the Transcendentalist movement, but it left a legacy of inspired authors (such as Louisa May Alcott, who wrote "Transcendental Wild Oats"), and is a prime example of the mistakes made by American utopian societies.

Louisa would later write a satirical account of her family’s time at Fruitlands, called Transcendental Wild Oats.
