Description
 
The works of Henry David Thoreau contain some of the most beautifully written & inspiring observations of nature, yet most of his readers are familiar with only one of his books, “Walden.” Two other gems, “The Maine Woods” & “Cape Cod,” are travelogues containing some of his finest writing. Here are selections from the best of these two works, including Thoreau’s record of his climb up Mt. Katahdin, his arduous river journey by canoe down the Allegash River, the deadly shipwreck he encountered on his first trip to Cape Cod, as well as his wonderfully colorful & humorous portrait of a Wellfleet oysterman. “Offers a vision of Thoreau struggling with the harsh realities of nature & of how people might live in harmony with the natural world.” Small format. Silk ribbon.
